Year 1 | Delineation and Mapping


Year 1 (2016-2017) | Delineation and Mapping


On Feb. 23, 2017, the AAMC hosted its first live-streamed workshop of a multi-year series of meetings to map participating institutions’ community health-focused activities into coordinated systems, and subsequently evaluate impacts for patients, communities, learners and the institutions themselves. The workshop included speakers from the VA, NIH, CMS, HRSA, and CDC among other national stakeholders.
