Our annual conference: Putting Care at the Center

An interprofessional conference for the complex care field

Putting Care at the Center is the annual conference of our National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs.

It is the only dedicated venue for members of the complex care field to learn, network, and create a shared agenda for improving care for people with complex needs.

  • healthcare and social service providers,
  • policymakers,
  • researchers,
  • advocates,
