One Day Conference - Friday, September 28, 2018
In 2018, the Primary Care Behavioral Health Conference returns to a one day conference schedule, aiming to enhance clinicians' capacity to treat some of the most challenging clinical cases presenting to primary care. The conference brings together respected clinical and policy leaders from different specialties of the integrated care medical home to detail novel approaches to whole-person care. Using a case-based approach to guide lectures and panel discussion, this conference will impact participants' understanding and confidence in caring for our most vulnerable and high-utilizing patients across the lifespan: New American, transgender and gender questioning, food and housing insecurity, and substance use disorders.

Preconference Workshop - Thursday, September 27, 2018
The day prior to the conference, we will offer a full day training in Motivational Interviewing with Stephen Andrew, LCSW, Chief Energizing Officer of the Health Education & Training Institute in Portland, Maine. This is an outstanding opportunity to train in basic MI skills with a leader in the field. Learn more about HETI and Stephen Andrew. Registration for the pre-conference workshop is now closed as we are at maximum capacity.

There will be separate registration fees for the two programs, with a discount to participants participating in both days.
