NACHC Announces Cancellation of 2020 Community Health Institute & EXPO

With great regret, the NACHC Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 NACHC Community Health Institute & Expo (CHI) in San Diego, CA. After considering all the pros and cons, the decision reconfirms our first priority: to keep our members, staff, and their families and
colleagues safe and healthy โ€“ and of equal importance, the well-being of our patients and communitieswho need us to continue to meet their health needs. We wanted to provide as much advance notice as possible so people can avoid incurring travel costs.
