 "Charting CHC Value in Uncertain Times"

MPCA's 2017 Annual Conference, Charting CHC Value in Uncertain Times, is our largest professional gathering of the year and draws a wide array of health center staff, as well as federal, state and community partners.

Our 2017 event kicks off on Wednesday, October 18th with conference sessions highlighting relevant topics and issues, followed by our annual Clinical Awards/Networking Reception, generously sponsored again this year by athenahealth_logo_pms_green_new2. The Reception offers the chance at some relaxed chat time and then highlights the many accomplishments of the recipients of our annual Clinical Excellence awards. On Thursday October 19th, we will host a day of key workshops dedicated to this year’s theme.

Whether you are part of the MPCA "vendor family" or a company looking at our conference for the first time, we look forward to seeing you at the Bar Harbor Club and Harborside Hotel in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine!

MPCA requires every speaker to sign a disclosure statement regarding any financial relationship (or lack thereof) with commercial supporters and these documents are brought on-site to the actual event. If you would like to review these documents prior to the event, please contact Andrea Watkins ( )
