SAVE THE DATE and join us for the 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Black Physicians Forum (BPF) taking place Friday, June 12, 2020 from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm at UC Davis School of Medicine in the Education Building, 4610 X Street in Sacramento, California. This year's theme will focus on: “Physicians building equity in maternal and child health outcomes for African Americans”. We are pleased to present our Keynote Speaker, Dr. Aletha Maybank, MD, MPH - Chief Health Equity Officer and Vice President of the American Medical Association along with MC/Host - Dr. Flojaune Cofer - Women's Health Epidemiologist & Senior Director of Policy at Public Health Adovcates

Encouraging African American physicians, nurses, health administrators/educatiors, public policy professionals, medical students and community members to attend. The purpose of the Forum is to connect African American physicians, clinicians, medical students, and health administrators with colleagues throughout Northern California to discuss physician leadership and collaborative roles in chronic disease education, prevention, and healthcare access. Physician leadership will encourage the African American/Urban community to make informed behavioral choices that improve long term health and well-being.

The BPF platform includes a welcome reception, networking mixer, keynote presentation, discussion groups, and panel of physician presenters who educate colleagues on current development in chronic diseases that plague African American communities, best practices in treatment, presentation of medical student scholarships, and highlight non traditional community service projects.

Sponsorships and vendor opportunities are available. For more info call our office at (916) 234-3589 or e-mail contact@sacculturalhub.com.
