Highlights from the Inaugural Gregg Stracks Leadership Summit
On September 22-23, 2012, primary care leaders and advocates from around the country gathered in Cambridge, Massachusetts for an interactive, skills-building and action-generating training. Participants focused on strategic advocacy, team-building and interpersonal engagement--leadership skills that are critical for anyone committed to primary care clinical innovation or education reform. Guest speakers included Professor Marshall Ganz, a legendary life-long organizer, and Dr. Jeff Brenner, the subject of Atul Gawande's New Yorker article, "The Hot Spotters."
The leadership summit honors the late Gregg Stracks. A founding member of PCP, Dr. Stracks was a born teacher, visionary, and optimist. His commitment to improved leadership practices and the value he placed on community building and teamwork provide the core framework for PCP’s grassroots advocacy efforts.
