Record Numbers Participate in League's Annual Conference

Falmouth, MA -- More than 300 community health center executives, clinicians and administrative staff will head to Falmouth this week to participate as part of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers’ annual Community Health Institute. This year’s conference, Rising Above the Noise, will put distractions to the side so that health centers can focus on the critical issues of preserving and expanding health care access and services for the nearly one million residents they serve.

Health centers will grapple with a range of topics, including their role in emerging ACO networks, medication-assisted treatment approaches for patients suffering with substance use disorders, the role that social determinants play in health, retaining and strengthening health center workforces and the recent and anticipated changes to immigration policies that impact the health and well-being of the communities they serve.

Speakers include Marylou Sudders, Secretary of Massachusetts Executive Office of Health & Human Services; Audrey Shelto, President of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation; and Tom Van Coverden, President & CEO of the National Association of Community Health Centers.
