The 2019 NJPCA Annual Conference, Celebrating 30 Years of Excellence, will be held on October 2-3, 2019 at the Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, NJ.

This year’s two-day conference is celebrating three decades of service to New Jersey’s Federally Qualified Health Centers. Our mission is to provide for the expansion and provision of quality, cost-effective and efficient primary healthcare through Community Health Centers. This conference is an opportunity to network with colleagues and community partners from across the Mid-Atlantic region. We will be sharing best practices, offering presentations, certification opportunities and engaging all professions within our community.

We invite you to join over 350 decision-makers including your Community Health Center colleagues at NJPCA’s 2019 Annual Conference. Let’s commemorate this special anniversary!

This year our conference has a mobile app! We’ll send you an activation link two weeks prior to the conference. Stay tuned!
