Sea Crest Beach Hotel, Falmouth

The 2019 Community Health Institute (CHI) will feature leadership development and educational sessions geared to a broad range of health center staff, including executive, clinical, financial, technical, operations, human resources, and administrative. The CHI focuses on the programmatic, operational, and health policy and regulatory issues affecting community health centers and their patients. The CHI's program is designed to share both the "how to" and "future challenges" for the industry. The conference attracts over 200 attendees and 50 exhibitors.

Abstract Submission Notification:

You will be notified on the status of your submission on or before February 28. Additional instructions will be sent once the proposal has been accepted. The League reserves the right to combine sessions, to make decisions with respect to presenters, and to edit abstracts for promotional purposes.

If Accepted:

All presenters are responsible for their own travel and hotel arrangements. Travel expenses are not covered for registered presenters. Registration fees will be waived for the day of your presentation. All presenters must be listed on the submitted presentation proposal.

The League must receive all speaker names with the abstract submission and a lead contact for the presentation should be designated. It is your responsibility to contact and confirm all speakers for the session. Any changes in speakers must be made by March 15. Upon acceptance, the League conference staff may modify the session title and description for promotional purposes. All efforts will be made to confer with the lead presenter before publication.

The 2019 CHI is paperless so we will post handouts received by May 1 on our website unless requested otherwise. The handouts will be placed in a password-protected area of the website and only registered attendees will be able to access them.

The League will provide a screen, microphone, laptop, and LCD projector for each session. If you need any other accommodations, please notify us in advance.

If you have any questions, please contact Deb Murphy (
