The Ohio Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (OPCPCC) annual conference is scheduled for Fri., Sept. 14 at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center in Columbus, Ohio.  The conference theme is Primary care and behavioral health: Pulling the patient out of the silos.  This 7th annual OPCPCC conference will examine how primary care and behavioral health providers can connect and integrate to improve patient care for Ohioans.

OPCPCC is pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for this year’s conference will be Benjamin F.
