    • All proposed faculty must be willing to commit and confirm their participation (in-person) upon submission of the abstract.
  3. Terms
    • All abstract proposals will be reviewed by a national conference planning committee composed of health center, PCA, HCCN, National Training and Technical Assistant Partners (NTTAP) leaders, with support from NACHC staff.

    • This is a competitive process. Due to the limited number of available education session slots, not all proposals will be accepted for conference presentation. Submitters will be notified of their abstract status by January 16, 2024.
Thank you for your continued support of NACHC and the professional development of the health center workforce and Boards of Directors!
