In a time of political and financial uncertainty, it is important to emphasize the value of the Community Health Center (CHC) model and its enduring contributions to health care over time. We would like to invite you to join your Maine health care colleagues for this year’s conference, “Charting CHC Value in Uncertain Times,” which will highlight how we can leverage the Community Health Center model to impact change during a time of transition in the health care landscape.

The CHC model ensures that not only are basic health care needs met, they integrated with other health-promoting services. This model reaches beyond improving patient health, surpassing traditional models of health care to improve population health and the overall health of the community.

MPCA’s 2017 Annual Conference joins health center teams and community partners with content experts to underscore the value of the Community Health Center model and will show how to continue enhancing this model to enrich the health and wellness of Maine’s people.

We would like to thank our Strategic Partner, Collaborative Health Systems (CHS),
for their ongoing support of MPCA and all FQHCs in 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 event. If you would like to review these documents prior to the event, please contact Andrea Watkins @
