National Primary Care Week
Because it is so important, PCP celebrates National Primary Care Week (Oct. 5-9) throughout the month of October. This year, we're celebrating the exciting future of primary care with webinars & exciting event ideas for our chapter network. Check out our NPCW coverage here.

Leading and Learning

Our 2015 cohorts have just rolled out! We're expanding our group learning and collaboration model this year to foster more chapter learning, support more local campaigns and help develop even more leaders and coaches. Learn all about the 2015 PCP Cohorts here

Connecting the Community

We did it! PCP's 2015 Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit brought together primary care change makers from across the country to connect as a community, learn leadership and advocacy skills and to learn from eachother. Check out photos from the event here.
