i2i is planning a hybrid event for our Pinehurst Conference, December 8-10, 2021. This means we will be hosting attendees at the Pinehurst Resort on December 8-10 and hosting a Virtual Conference at the same time.
Hybrid Event & Presentations
As a hybrid event, some sessions will be offered online via a Virtual Conference Platform (Whova) as well as in person. Others will be virtual only. For example, if your submission is chosen for an in-person presentation, you will also be asked to record your session so that it can be offered at the Virtual Conference as well. This will greatly expand your session’s reach and audience. In addition, some submissions will be chosen ONLY for the virtual conference. To date, our Virtual events have been very well received and anyone attending the in-person conference will have access to BOTH the live sessions and the virtual sessions.
Historically, the Pinehurst Conference has been the highest attended event for i2i drawing up to 1000 people. We plan to continue this tradition and know many are anxious to get back to Pinehurst this year. Conference presenters will have an exceptional opportunity for exposure to potentially over 1000 leaders and professionals representing private and public MH/IDD/SUD and primary healthcare payers and providers, human service leaders, hospital system leaders, State agencies, advocates, consumer and family members and other stakeholders.
We are looking for experts that can offer conference goers insight, skills, resources and information to help them adapt and be successful with NC’s transition to whole person, integrated care through the implementation of Medicaid managed care while also negotiating the challenges facing our service system. These challenges include changes occurring as a result of the pandemic, the need to address health disparities and racial equity, economic uncertainty, as well as the increasing role of technology in all aspects of our service system.
We are seeking 1.5 hour main topic session proposals and 1 hour Sparking Innovation submissions. All proposals should aim to address policy issues and implications, services, consumer involvement, and/or administrative aspects of any of the topic areas below.
