Preparing for Summit 2019


The date and location have been set for Primary Care Progress’ annual Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit. Mark your calendars to join us August 16-18 at the Babson Executive Conference Center in Babson Park, MA!


The Summit is our signature annual training event for PCP’s Cohort of interprofessional healthcare students, residents, and their faculty advisors. At PCP, we use Relational Leadership™ to help them develop the skills, team strength, and community capacity to navigate the unprecedented transformation and change happening in healthcare today. The weekend exposes Team Leaders and Faculty Advisors to PCP's interactive Relational Leadership™ training and provides PCP Cohort teams with the opportunity to build authentic connections and community with others in the PCP Network.


Each spring, dozens of student-led, interprofessional teams apply to be part of the PCP Cohort and the opportunity to attend the Summit. Students and faculty members on the campuses of academic medical institutions band together to form a PCP Team, with each team committing to at least one action-oriented, longitudinal project to execute throughout an academic year. Supported by PCP National’s dynamic Relational Leadership™ curriculum, every PCP Team sets out to make a positive impact in their community — by promoting primary care locally, advancing innovations in care delivery, or advocating for health equity and better access to care — whatever their mission may be. After applying and being accepted as an active team in the Action Network, each active team receives an invitation to attend the Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit in August and engage with PCP National and its programming throughout the year.


Summit Scholarship

Active teams in the PCP Cohort often rely on support from their institutions to offset the cost of attending this powerful, invitation-only conference. Although limited scholarships are available through PCP, institutional underwriting goes a long way to filling the funding gap and demonstrating support for student involvement. Team Leaders can use this institutional support guide as a resource for requesting financial assistance.

About Gregg Stracks

The summit honors the late Gregg Stracks. A born teacher, visionary, and optimist, Gregg's commitment to cultivating leadership and building community was the foundation for PCP's leadership development efforts. Gregg was a gifted psychologist with the ability to see the best in others, working closely with them to draw out skills and strengths in interpersonal connection, effective communication, and problem solving.

In addition to co-founding PCP, he worked with the Clinton Foundation and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. His passion, humility, and humor touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him.
