Each Community Health Center presents unique challenges and opportunities based on their history, shared mission, service model, and funding streams. Do you know someone working in a Community Health Center who is new to the field or who is in a position to grow in their career? Bi-State's Leadership Development Program is an seven-session educational series designed to provide a solid foundation to individuals working in the field of primary care delivery.


The day-long sessions immerse attendees in an experiential learning environment designed to build knowledge and skill. Participants will learn alongside colleagues from other health centers about the historic movement that created Community Health Centers in the United States, the patient-centered model of care, the impact and techniques of successful advocacy, the challenge and opportunities in budgeting and the importance of recruiting and retaining a qualified workforce.


With nearly 30 years’ experience in providing technical assistance to Community Health Centers in New Hampshire and Vermont, Bi-State has identified the skills and knowledge required to effectively perform key functions in Community Health Center management.
