Join us on Zoom from June 15 - July 9, 2020 for the Virtual COVID-19 Conference.


NWRPCA has developed the Virtual COVID-19 Conference in the hopes of offering a training series to provide support to health centers at this critical time that addresses their current needs. We believe that providing convening spaces for health centers to learn and share with one another is invaluable at this unprecedented moment. Even during this active response to COVID-19, health centers are also preparing for an additional spike in COVID-19 cases in the fall. With this offering, we aim to assist health centers with preparedness and continuity of operations.


These 90-minute virtual sessions will provide relevant, timely information for health center staff and board members. 


The Virtual COVID-19 Conference will close with virtual job-specific Roundtable discussions at no cost.

Sponsor & Advertising Opportunities

Leverage your organizations response to the COVID-19 pandemic response at the NWRPCA 2020 Virtual COVID-19 Summit. You will benefit from increased exposure as virtual attendees see your brand on sessions, and your organization will gain increased engagement with cost savings by not having to travel, or pay for printing, or shipping costs.


The Virtual COVID-19 Summit features four educational tracks with 16 sessions that span across four weeks. The sponsorships and outreach opportunities embed attendee engagement throughout the conference schedule, in the live and recorded sessions, in virtual office hours, and an online conference program. Virtual impressions last much longer than in-person conferences because members will have access to recorded content archived in the NWRPCA Learning Vault.
