The changing health care environment is leading to more inter-disciplinary partnerships between public health and primary care. These new partnerships require strong leaders at the helm, with the right knowledge, skills, and creativity.

The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice (NWCPHP), Community Health Association of Mountain Plains States (CHAMPS), and Northwest Regional Primary Care Association (NWRPCA) are proud to introduce the Primary Care and Public Health Inter-Professional Leadership and Development Institute.

To be held October 19–20, in Denver, Colorado, the institute provides collaborative leadership and change management training for public health and primary care leaders. Participants will learn from experts in both fields, looking at successful models for collaboration and concrete examples of adaptive leadership skills and behaviors to actualize the "triple aim."

The institute is being held in conjunction with the 2014 CHAMPS/NWRPCA Fall Primary Care Conference, with support from RCHN Community Health Foundation. For more information about the Primary Care and Public Health Inter-Professional Leadership and Development Institute, view the flyer or agenda.

The registration deadline is October 6, 2014. Registrants are eligible for a two-day member rate of $600. The institute is limited to 40 participants. Register for the institute today!
