A panel discussion with views from medical educators, health systems, community mental health, payers and providers will be followed by an interactive dialogue on how organizations can collaborate to achieve collective impact on the physician workforce in the Capital Area.
When: Thursday, April 14, 2016; 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Where: Leona Training Center, 2123 University Park Drive #150, Okemos, MI
