Overview

The Western Forum for Migrant and Community Health is an annual conference bringing together health professionals from migrant and community health centers and allied organizations for the purposes of education and training, information and resource sharing, coalition building, and program and policy development.

 

Be part of our theme design!

This year's theme - Resilient, Strong Communities: Laying the Foundation for Health Equity - reminds us of the power of relentless collective action and persistent unified voices. Ultimately, it is the resilient community that creates sustainable, lasting change.

 

We invite you to represent this year's theme because you are part of the resilient, strong community laying the foundation for health equity. Each of us live and breathe the truth that accessible, equitable health is a fundamental right for all, and we have dedicated overwhelming amounts of time and energy to see the vision of true health, wellness, and well-being for all become reality for the patients and communities we serve.

 

Share a photo* that most represents you, whether it's of your community, your family, or your smiling face, we want to broadcast that you, and all of us collectively, are a community that will help see this vision through.

 

*Please note that your photo will be part of our digital and printed marketing materials prior to the conference and at the conference itself. By sending us your photo, you are authorizing the use of your photo for these purposes.


 

Submit Your Stipend Application

NWRPCA is able to offer a limited number of stipends to qualifying individuals and organization. They are intended to help frontline staff from community and migrant health centers attend the conference. Priority will be given to those individuals.

 

The application deadline is December 1, 2017. Stipend recipients will be informed of their award December 12, 2017.

Participate in the Poster Session

This year’s Forum will feature a poster session sponsored by Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center. The poster session is a great opportunity for individuals to present their research and projects related to topics such as community health, health equity, healthcare for underserved populations, and farmworker health.

 

Learn more and submit an abstract to present your poster.


 

Continuing Education

In support of helping health center staff, clinicians, administration, and board of directors pursue professional development, NWRPCA conferences are a consistent source of continuing education units (CEU). Each forum typically offers CEU in continuing nursing education (CNE) and continuing medical education (CME).

 

CEU certificates are accessed online. Conference attendees will be sent an email after the conference with instructions on how to process your CEU online. You will be responsible for completing the process online and printing your certificate.

 

The specific 2018 Western Forum for Migrant and Community Health CEU will be announced.
