The IPHCA Conference 2021,
Energy from Adversity, is in the books. 

More than 700 user contributions, more than 190,000 user engagements, and more than 400 individuals attended at least some portion of the conference—the most significant number in IPHCA history. 

Keynote topics included:  FQHCs: The Bridge to Addressing Systemic Inequity in Health, Health Insurance in 2030: From COVID to Consumerism, and From Me to We: How to Cultivate Empathy and Promote Mental Well-Being, each topic focusing on relevant hot issues concerning CHCs.

Nearly half of all attendees participated in the Wonder Room, a unique experience that allows real-time chat with groups of individuals—a video version of a cocktail hour—without the cocktails.
