PCP's 6th Annual Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit is Aug. 18-20, 2017 in Minneapolis! (The Summit is invite-only.) More details on agenda, registration, scholarships, and other logistics available here.

The work of primary care professionals is more important now than ever. With so many unknowns in healthcare, we know one thing won’t change - the impact of great health providers at the heart of care. But in an evolving system of delivery, practitioners at every career stage and in every discipline demand new skills that bridge clinical innovation and authentic connection. At Primary Care Progress, we bring together the push for quality improvement with the need for personal resilience - strengthening the community at the heart of care and cultivating more compassionate, integrated care teams. This mission comes alive in our professional development programs, through hotspotting projects across the country, within our national network of health professions school teams, and in our signature annual training event for students and faculty in healthcare: the Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit.

The annual Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit is an invitation-only, two-day training bringing together faculty and student leaders from across PCP's national network. Frequently regarded by participants as the best leadership training program in healthcare, the Summit consists of hands-on, interactive sessions that teach early and mid-career professionals how to thrive in a rapidly evolving healthcare environment by building leadership competencies critical for team building, advocacy, and change-management.

  About Gregg Stracks, Psy.D.

Greg StracksThe summit honors the late Gregg Stracks. A founding member of PCP, Gregg was a born teacher, visionary, and optimist. His commitment to improved leadership practices and the value he placed on community building and teamwork provided the core framework for PCP’s leadership development efforts. Working with both individuals and teams, Gregg designed his assessments, feedback, and coaching to ensure that leaders not only gained a greater perspective on their leadership strengths and developmental areas, but also were provided with concrete ways of leading more effectively.

In addition to his work with PCP, Gregg was a co-founder of OPUS Leadership Group, a firm of management and organizational psychologists. Prior to his work with OPUS Leadership, he worked with the Clinton Foundation and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation in Kenya and Mozambique. His passion, humility, and expertise left an indelible mark on all who knew him and worked with him. His commitment to learning and self-improvement remains an inspiration to colleagues, clients, and friends. By emphasizing the importance of self-reflection for improved leadership capacities and outcomes, the Summit proudly honors the work and memory of Gregg Stracks.
