Forum Objectives

Whether an organization currently operates a Mobile Health clinic or is planning to launch a new community mobile outreach program, the Forum curriculum is designed to enhance administrative skills and expand the knowledge-base to ensure effective and sustainable Mobile Healthcare services. Healthcare practitioners and administrators will share their insights and invaluable expertise on a broad range of topics reflecting the general theme. The Forum is an extraordinary educational and networking opportunity for mobile health specialists to develop long-term resources and to meet over 250 professional colleagues from across the country that serve in the mobile clinic environment. The Forum promotes knowledge, networking, and leadership, all integrated to ensure a productive and inspiring experience for attendees in presentation-style sessions and interactive roundtable peer discussions.
