Invite a Speaker to Your NPCW Event
One type of event that many groups choose to organize during National Primary Care Week is a speakers panel. A speakers panel is a great way to bring together knowledgeable speakers – clinicians, advocates, students, and others – to share their experiences and provide new perspectives on the importance of primary care. During NPCW 2012, two members of the Primary Care Progress team are available to speak at select NPCW events: Dr. Andrew Morris-Singer, PCP President and Co-Founder, and David Margolius, PCP Innovation Collaboratives Team Advisor. If you’re interested in bringing one of the speakers listed below to your NPCW event, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
