A Potential Dynamic Duo: Community Groups and Academia Working in Tandem

Funding for the third National Primary Care Conference

In 1997, the federal Health Resources and Services Administration held "The Third National Primary Care Conference," part of the agency's effort to focus attention on the changing nature and practice of primary care.

Key Results

  • "The Third National Primary Care Conference," held on February 26–28, 1997, in Washington, was built around 20 case studies of community-academic partnerships designed to address the challenges of practicing primary care in a changing marketplace.
  • Project staff collected the case studies in a book — The Third National Primary Care Conference. Community-Based Academic Partnerships: Case Studies — and distributed it to conference attendees and others on request.


The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) supported this project through grant of $45,800.
