Healthy Community Providers' Brunch.

United We Stand

3701 Canyon Crest Dr Riverside, CA 92521

August 16, 2017

9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Healthy Community Providers' Brunch is an annual convening of the Healthy Community Providers' Network (HCPN)— a consortium of sexual and reproductive health agencies, hospitals, elected officials, and the two regional departments of public health for Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

The HCPN was established in response to a growing need within the Inland Empire— Riverside and San Bernardino counties—for healthcare providers to increase awareness of one another’s services, establish strategic coalitions, and to collectively advocate for the prioritization of health services in the Inland Empire by our public officials.

In our first year, the Healthy Community Providers' Brunch had over 125 providers from various agencies attend and provide updates on their latest services, discuss any changes in organizational leadership or structures, and to identify gaps in services and available resources. Representatives from our local county board of supervisors, various city council members within the region, and senior leadership from both of the two counties departments of public health were in attendance.

This year’s brunch theme is “United We Stand” and is building-off of the International HIV/AIDS Conference themes and objectives. Our key areas this year are: Increasing access to Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, housing opportunities for people living with and at highest risk for HIV, sexual health education for teenagers, and strategies for surviving under the Trump presidency.
