2020 PCC Virtual Annual Conference Agenda

Conference Agenda

Tentative agenda; all sessions (times, topics, speakers, etc.) are subject to change. Check back regularly for updates. Speakers, titles and descriptions will be added to this page as they are confirmed. You are encouraged to attend all parts of the conference, which is being designed with “Zoom fatigue” in mind. There will be different types of sessions, ranging from keynote addresses to panel discussions and fireside chats. Online networking with other attendees and sponsors and breaks will be scattered throughout the schedule. Attending all parts will enable you to participate in the full narrative arc of the conference that is being carefully developed. While a wide range of topics will be covered, they are often interrelated as critical issues in primary care, and sessions will build upon each other, with the goal of drawing attendees toward conclusions by the end of the two days.
