Putting Care at the Center is the annual conference of the 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. Attendees include healthcare and social service providers, policymakers, researchers, advocates, complex care consumers and caregivers, and more.
Putting Care at the Center is held in a different city each year, co-hosted with a local organization. The first conference was in 2016 in Philadelphia; in 2017 it was in Los Angeles, co-hosted by Kaiser Permanente; in 2018 it was in Chicago, co-hosted by Rush University Medical Center and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; and in 2019 it was in Memphis, co-hosted by Regional One Health. In 2020 and in 2021 it was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Putting Care at the Center 2022 will be held in-person in Sacramento, CA, co-hosted by Adventist Health. Save the date for September 20-23, and sign up for the Camden Coalition’s email list to learn when applications for presenters and registration open.
