Community Health Institute (CHI) & EXPO is the largest and most important annual gathering of 2000 community health center managers, clinicians, employees, board members and leaders.

The NACHC 2015 Community Health Institute (CHI) is scheduled to kick off in Orlando as key provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are being implemented and health centers continue to expand to meet growing demand for primary care services.  The vast changes in the health care environment set in motion by ACA implementation raise new issues for Community Health Centers and their patients in all areas of operations – financial, clinical and policy. The NACHC CHI will bring together the most up-to-date information about the transformation now taking shape, and give you the tools to stay strategically competitive in the new Health Insurance Marketplace.
