Open Health Care Clinic will host their annual health education conference, “Open Talks,” presented by Avita Pharmacy and Clinical Pathology Laboratories on Oct. 27 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Executive Center. This one-day conference will feature speakers from across the United States, presenting on topics related to adolescent healthcare.
Open Health Care Clinic believes that addressing adolescent healthcare needs is essential to promoting healthier behaviors into adulthood, thereby bridging the gap between pediatric and adult primary care. The program goal is to increase the knowledge of current adolescent health issues, youth clinical practices, current legal rights, and culturally appropriate health promotion to provide better quality service to our community's youth.
“Open Talks” will provide five continuing education units to nurses, licensed social workers, and licensed professional counselors, allowing networking with colleagues and vendors. The conference aims to provide the information, skills, and resources needed for attendees to advocate for their patients.
The conference fee is $75 for licensed professionals, and $40 for students and non-licensed healthcare providers. The fee includes breakfast and lunch. The conference agenda and registration can be accessed at www.ohcc.org/education.
“Open Talks” health conference is a component of Open Health Care Clinic’s community health education initiative to provide year-round comprehensive healthcare training for clinicians, patients, and consumers.
