Primary Care Coalition's 25th Anniversary Symposium

  • The Samuel Riggs IV, Alumni Center, University of Maryland  7801 Alumni Drive College Park, MD, 20742 United States (map)

Join us on November 28th at the University of Maryland to celebrate our 25th anniversary. 
We will explore how we can work toward a vibrant community that supports all people in living healthy lives.

Disparities in health outcomes are often the result of inequitable socio-economic circumstances. The PCC works to support all people in leading healthy lives with the recognition that people who experience racial, gender, and other inequities are likely to experience poorer health outcomes. This conference will explore the many different ways health inequities are apparent in our health care system and how to lift up opportunities to create more equitable, person-centered systems and culture of care delivery. 

Keynote Speakers

Niall Brennan BA, MPP, President and CEO of the Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI)

Michele Lent Hirsch, Author of Invisible: How Young Women with Serious Health Issues Navigate Work, Relationships, and the Pressure to Seem Just Fine.
