Policy & Issues Forum

Marriott Wardman Park Hotel
Washington, DC
March 27-30, 2019
Committee Meetings: March 30-31, 2019


Every  year the NACHC Policy & Issues Forum (P&I Forum) draws thousands of Community Health Center professionals and leaders in one of the largest national conferences focused on primary care and health policy. Clinicians, executives, administrators, consumers, board members and advocates from all over the country assemble to dialogue and meet with their lawmakers on Capitol Hill. They bring with them a long history of bipartisan support based on significant achievement as the largest primary health care network in the U.S.

This year’s gathering will be the first since the mid-term elections shifted the balance of power in the U.S. House of Representatives and elected new leaders in state capitals around the country. Do not miss this opportunity to gain a fresh understanding of how the new political dynamics will affect key priorities and shape the future of health centers.

Join the online conversation and see updates by using #NACHC19PI on NACHC’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
