You are invited to attend Michigan Primary Care Association's (MPCA) Annual Conference that will be held on August 14-16, 2016, at the beautiful Grand Traverse Resort located in Acme, MI. 

This annual event brings together Michigan Health Center staff (executive leadership, medical, dental, and behavioral health providers; finance and operations officers; clinical directors) and board members to learn from each other, and expert faculty presenting on clinical, finance, operations, governance, and administrative topics.  This conference provides a great opportunity to make new connections, hear new ideas, engage with peers and refuel as you return to your Health Center with new resources, tools, and approaches to strengthen your programs, services, and operations.

Last year's conference was our biggest yet drawing close to 300 attendees, including 45 exhibitors!  Many thanks to all of our attendees, sponsors and exhibitors for making it a huge success. We hope you'll join us again this year, because we're planning this year's event to be even better!  Check out some of the pictures from last year.
