Submit an Abstract


Closes: Feb. 24, 2023

Join us to examine trends and forces shaping the future of health care, from the hospital to home and community settings.

The 2023 Home and Community Based Care Symposium will explore current and future benefits and challenges of technology for patients, caregivers, and providers, as well as for public health. Our goal is for all participants to learn together and apply their expertise in examining strategies that will enhance models of home- and community-based care and will ultimately improve health outcomes.

  4. The primary author (presenter) must provide the required information for all co-authors (including all collaborating partners) at the time of submission and whether co-authors plan to attend the summit.
