Event description
SAVE THE DATE! The Butte-Glenn Medical Society will host the "Restoring Healthcare, Restoring Community Summit" at the Chico State BMU.

About this Event

The provider community is invited to the Restoring Healthcare, Restoring Community Summit on Wednesday, September 18 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at CSU Chico Bell Memorial Union (BMU). This summit is funded by grants from North Valley Community Foundation and Physicians for a Healthy California and produced by Butte-Glenn Medical Society.

Communities thrive when there is a strong healthcare community and infrastructure. This summit is designed for the provider community to regroup 10 months after the Camp Fire.

Let's gather together as healthcare leaders to discuss efforts already underway to restore healthcare and restore community. The more our provider community knows, the more we can improve access to care for our community.

Dinner will be provided no charge. Discussions will focus on the loss of assisted living beds, healthcare workforce, needs for more psychiatric beds, mental health/trauma needs and what's happening with hospitals.
