Philadelphia Public Health Grand Rounds: Access to Primary Care in Philadelphia


Topic: Access to Primary Care in Philadelphia: Scope of the Problem, Identifying Solutions

Multiple reports have demonstrated that having a regular source of primary care enhances receipt of prevent care services and improves health outcomes. However, many factors may affect access to primary care, including health insurance; work, family, and school commitments; difficulties traveling to primary care facilities; lack of primary care providers; and lack of knowledge about the health care system. Social determinants of health, including race/ethnicity, also are associated with disparities in receipt of primary care. This Public Health Grand Rounds will explore barriers to accessing primary care in the Philadelphia area and examine solutions to improve access to care among underserved populations.

Speakers to be announced.

This event is presented by The Section on Public Health and Preventive Medicine of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia in coordination with Philadelphia Department of Public Health with funding support from the Independence Foundation.

The Mütter Museum will not be open during this event.
