By tapping into our community's wealth of knowledge and expertise, our regional programs offer you a unique mixture of targeted networking with health leaders in your area, as well as innovative educational content providing you with proven solutions to advance your organization. As a reminder, registration is a complimentary benefit of AMGA membership!

During the course of the face-to-face meeting, presentations will focus on:

  • Virtual care (mobile clinics, staff and patient buy-in, balancing)
  • Provider/staff engagement & resiliency
  • Reducing care disparities (immunizations, preventative services, etc.)
  • Compensation trends and incentivizing for value

AMGA is instituting a new format specifically designed to increase the interaction and networking among attendees. Time will be split between a succinct presentation, small group breakouts, and an open floor where attendees can consult with the group for advice on any topic.
