The Lunch and Learn series is a primary dissemination channel to educate primary care stakeholders about the most relevant and actionable primary care research. Lunch and Learn discussions bring together primary care researchers, advocates, policymakers and others to discuss key findings and policy implications of the most important research selected by PCC's research dissemination workgroup, with the goal of better integrating the research findings into organizational and policy decisions.  Thank you to our Lunch and Learn Co-chairs for facillitating the discussion.

Plagued by an overreliance on fee-for-service reimbursement and chronic financial underinvestment as compared to other countries, the primary care sector in the United States has been a target of reform for decades. We’ve seen an undervaluing of the primary care workforce, slow adoption of primary care alternative payment models, and a continued focus on and bias toward use of specialty care. How can we reform primary care to be a sustainable, efficient, and equitable system? Join our panel of experts as they discuss the path toward transforming this critical piece of our healthcare system: Patrick Conway, MD Ishani Ganguli, MD, MPH Linda A.
