The Association of Clinicians for the Underserved is honored to welcome James (Jim) Macrae, MA, MPP, Associate Administrator of the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration, as a keynote speaker at our 2022 Conference, “Resilience & Transformation,” in Washington, D.C., and online on July 31-August 3. Macrae is a nationally recognized public health leader and administrator, and he will headline our symposium exploring the need to work together to eliminate health disparities and address systemic practices contributing to poor health in Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, LGBTQIA, and other underserved minority and intersectional groups.
As head of BPHC, Macrae manages a $5.6 billion budget supporting nearly 1,400 health centers which operate approximately 13,000 service delivery sites in every U.S. state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Basin. Serving nearly 30 million people nationwide, these centers provide comprehensive and patient-centric care, coordinating a wide range of medical, dental, mental health, substance use disorder, vision, and patient support services. From 2015-2017, he also served as Acting Administrator for HRSA, overseeing more than 90 programs providing health services to millions of individuals in medically underserved communities.
Macrae’s presentation will be but one highlight in our CME-accredited ACU Conference offering crucial trainings for clinicians, administrators, and advocates alike in Washington, D.C. and virtually. Featuring three unique tracks as well as exciting general sessions and keynotes, the event will offer more than 20 educational workshops, keynote addresses, and more.
