Community Clinician Steering Committee

Our Community Clinician Steering Committee is comprised of practicing community clinicians in primary care, representing independent practices and multiple local health systems. The Community Clinician Steering Committee meets three to four times per year, often reviewing practice-based studies and quality improvement projects with researchers to find ways to minimize burden for practices and maximize potential benefits for patients and practices.
