AACOM President Attends Primary Care 2025 National Workshop

On September 19-20, leading health care experts, including AACOM President Stephen C. Shannon, DO, MPH, convened at the national workshop, Primary Care 2025: A Scenario Exploration, hosted by the Institute for Alternative Futures (IAF) and sponsored by the Kresge Foundation. Due to the changing primary care landscape, workshop participants were asked to discuss and develop recommendations that might be followed in a variety of potential scenarios. Participants discussed how to deal with potential future health scenarios and how to refocus the nation’s health care system on prevention, as well as how the United States can retain its edge in the global health care arena. The group’s recommendations will be published in a final report in late 2011.
