Thank you to all who attended the 2016 CAPH/SNI Annual Conference: Thriving Patients, Caring Systems, Healthy Communities. We hope you came away from our three days in Pasadena energized and inspired by speakers like Dr. America Bracho, Executive Director of Latino Health Access; Dr. Rishi Manchanda, founder of the Upstreamist Institute; and Jon Favreau, former speechwriter for President Obama.
Many of you had the opportunity to attend meetings and learning sessions with your colleagues, both from within your organization and from all of California’s public health care systems, and attendees had the chance to network with others from across the landscape of public health care, including foundation leaders and sponsors, as well as members of the CAPH/SNI team.
All told, the conference had more than 250 attendees and twenty-eight hours of programming, including nine keynote speakers (a record for us!), three affinity group meetings, a half-day workshop, two board meetings, an awards luncheon, a documentary screening, and our annual Chair’s Reception and Holiday Gala Dinner.
Presentations and materials from the conference are available below, check out this year’s QLA winners here, and mark your calendars now for early December of next year!
For more than 30 years, the CAPH/SNI Annual Conference has been a place for public health care system leadership, state and local officials and their staffs, and representatives from advocacy organizations and foundations to gather, connect, learn, and be inspired. The CAPH/SNI Annual Conference celebrates and informs the work being done by California’s public health care systems to fulfil their essential safety net mission and mandate – to provide the right care in the right place at the right time to everyone, regardless of insurance status, ability to pay, or other circumstance, while competing in the health care marketplace. The conference features guest speakers who are recognized figures from the worlds of health care practice, policy and politics, and is regularly attended by more than 200 leaders.

Jamila Michener is an Assistant professor in the department of Government at Cornell University. Her research focuses on poverty and racial inequality in American politics. More specifically, her work explores two overarching themes: the conditions under which economically and racially disadvantaged groups engage in the political process, and the role of the state in shaping the political and economic trajectories of marginalized communities. Centering on these concerns, her research has been supported by the Ford Foundation, the National Science Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
