Dartmouth NNE CO-OP PBRN Annual Meeting

The Dartmouth CO-OP Primary Care Practice-based Research Network (Dartmouth CO-OP PBRN) was founded in 1972 by enthusiastic primary care clinicians working towards improving the quality of healthcare. We serve as an operational base for primary care clinicians, their practices, and their communities, to work together to answer community-based healthcare questions and translate research findings into practice. You can find us housed within the Department of Community & Family Medicine at Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine. Join us for a great opportunity to discuss and investigate current medical health topics with a variety of healthcare professionals from across Northern New England. After attending our Annual Meeting, you'll go home with new knowledge and ideas from participating in one of our several workshops, networking events, and brain storming sessions. Please visit our website for more information about us and the 41st Annual Meeting.
