2023 PCA & HCCN: Inclusion of Post-Conference Workshops
Exploring Health Center Pathways to Health Equity Workshop
Unpacking Our Personal Stories and Creating Space for Transformational Change
This workshop will address the long-term impacts of structural racism, oppression, and bias in healthcare and the communities that are being served. Participants will engage in active discussions about the relationships between identity, power, privilege, and the importance of integrating community voice in health equity efforts at the patient and care team levels, organizational and community levels, and payment and policy levels.
The workshop will involve individual and group activities to examine how social drivers of health (SDOH) and structural barriers impact community health and well-being. By the end of the workshop, participants will acquire a comprehensive understanding of key concepts, actions, and strategies that foster health equity and address the influence of structural racism in health centers and the communities they serve.

Intensive Data Lab: Data to Drive Improvement in Hypertension
Participants will work in small groups to develop community health center patient personas (i.e., patient-like characters) using a patient-level dataset. Participants will apply their findings to various quality measures and health outcomes and explore interventions to tackle the biggest disparities in hypertension. This interactive learning lab is designed for quality improvement, data-driven professionals, and clinical staff with data duties.
