Background on WCN
The Western Clinicians Network (WCN) is a peer-led, volunteer, professional association of medical and dental leaders of community health centers in the Western States. Founded in 1993, WCN was created to facilitate the convening and provision of training and technical assistance to the medical directors and other clinical leaders of federally funded community health centers in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and the Pacific Islands (Region IX of the Bureau of Primary Health Care).
WCN members are clinical leaders driving improvements in preventative and chronic disease care in community health centers and working to develop integrated systems of care and a health home for the medically underserved members of our community.
WCN is governed by an all-volunteer board of 20 clinical leaders who are elected at the spring annual meeting which is held in conjunction with the Region IX leadership conference.
Regular membership is open to any clinician working in a primary care community clinic or health center or a clinically trained executive. Associate membership is open to any individual with an interest and agreement with the mission and purpose of the corporation.
