Event description

Description

The Institute for Better Health at Trillium Health Partners is delighted to launch the Hazel McCallion IBH Annual Endowed Lecture in Shaping Healthier Communities. This event has been established in 2018 through generous donations from individuals, families and organizations to the Trillium Health Partners Foundation.

This lectureship sponsors an annual presentation and associated activities that engage our community around the critical issues, challenges and cutting edge developments in research and innovation related to learning health systems. The purpose of the lecture is to bring nationally and internationally acclaimed scientists and innovators to our clinical, professional, academic and broader community to inspire and stimulate thinking and action to advance approaches that improve the quality and experience of care from all perspectives, including patients, family and providers.

This year's lecture will be presented by Edward Wagner, M.D., M.P.H., M.A.C.P. Dr. Wagner is a general internist/epidemiologist who retired in 2017 as Director Emeritus of the MacColl Center for Health Care Innovation at the Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute and Emeritus Professor of Health Services at the University of Washington. He and his MacColl colleagues developed the Chronic Care Model (CCM), an integral part of the Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), and the Care Coordination Model, and were involved in multiple efforts to study and improve primary care nationally and internationally. He has written two books and over 300 peer-reviewed publications. His honors include: election to membership in the National Academy of Medicine, the NCQA Health Care Quality Award, the Picker Institute Award for Excellence in Patient-Centered Care, the William B. Graham Prize for Health Services Research, and the Lifetime Achievement Award of the National Association of Community Health Centers. Since retiring, he is devoting time to efforts to improve services for young people in crisis and adults with mental illness.

This lecture is being held in partnership with the 2018 Medical Psychiatry Alliance (MPA) Conference, which will follow The Hazel McCallion IBH Annual Endowed Lecture. If you would like to stay for the MPA Conference, please follow this link to purchase your $25 ticket.
