Annual Primary Care Conference

Registration GenericEach May, the AUCH Primary Care Conference brings together nearly 200 Health Center staff, board members, and other primary care professionals for two days of presentations and interactive sessions by leaders in the healthcare field. The venue also serves as our annual "AUCHIE" awards ceremony, honoring Health Center Heroes from across the state. The conference is made possible by over 40 generous sponsors and exhibitors, and is hosted at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center which offers stunning views of the Wasatch mountain range, bordering Salt Lake City.
