Primary care is important for our state and for our country. We think that embracing enhanced primary care in Utah will not only lower the cost of health care and improve the health in our state, but will inform solutions to better healthcare for systems across the country. That’s because Utah has a little bit of everything – from rural geography to high density urban populations and nationally recognized health systems to passionate stakeholders ready to collaborate on solutions.
This year, we are excited to hold the summit via a virtual platform. We have secured the participation of renowned health equities champion, Dr. Camara Jones who is sure to attract a great deal of interest in the health professional community. We hope as the nation confronts and heals its ongoing struggle with racism; we can help provide the tools to address it. Our goal is to provide a forum that increases the recognition of racism in the primary care settings in the state of Utah, and the education of future health professionals in this arena.
Join us for this one-day event on October 16, 2020, to discuss primary care solutions to Utah’s priority health concerns. We are excited to bring a broad set of stakeholders to this conversation, including health systems, policymakers, higher education, public health, and community-based organizations dedicated to enhancing primary care in Utah.
