Photo Friday: The Expanding Room of Supporters for Primary Care


This week’s photograph (sorry, a few days late) is from the Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative annual Summit, on October 17, 2008, in Washington, DC. As Edwina Rogers and Paul Grundy, MD, noted, this is a remarkable scene – I remember being at the Summit just two years ago in 2006, when around 40 people were present in this room. They topped out at 385 this time.

PCPCC has been incredibly successful in achieving engagement around a robust primary care system, not just in numbers but in the number of projects and innovators creating them in this room. I thought there was so much energy during the breaks that I might think about a future summit being hosted using an Unconference or BarCamp platform. We can’t let any ideas go unheard!
