It’s time to highlight primary care.

Present your ideas and initiatives at the AFHTO 2023 Conference:
Team-Based Care: Making it a reality for all

We’ll be selecting sessions and posters for our 4 core themes and we want to hear from you. This is YOUR opportunity to showcase the great work being done in your team, to share innovative approaches occurring in primary care, and to highlight initiatives that are making an impact on your communities’ health needs. Your submissions allow us to recognize the high-quality care each of you provide as we strive to make team-based care a reality for all.
