About the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU)

ACU is a nonprofit, transdisciplinary organization of clinicians, advocates and healthcare organizations united in a common mission to improve the health of America’s underserved populations and to enhance the development and support of the healthcare clinicians serving these populations. ACU was established in 1996 by participants and alumni of the National Health Service Corps (NHSC). Today the NHSC represents more than 20,000 providers. Our membership includes healthcare professionals, healthcare clinics and organizations, and professional societies.

ACU Annual Meeting Attendees

The Annual Conference focuses on bringing healthcare professionals together to focus on improving care for people and communities that are medically underserved. The conference will feature national leaders and government officials for discussions on health equity, patient engagement, workforce recruitment and retention, health information technology, and policy and advocacy. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear presentations, participate in workshops, network with colleagues and presenters, visit exhibit tabletops, and view poster presentations. Working together, we believe we can improve both access and quality of care for our underserved communities.

ACU encompasses a broad range of health professionals serving diverse patient populations in widely varying practice settings and geographic areas. ACU’s definition of comprehensive healthcare includes medical, integrative, oral, behavioral and pharmaceutical services. ACU attendees include primary care providers of all types – physicians, dentists, hygienists, nurses, pharmacists, mental and behavioral health providers, chiropractors, complementary medicine and other non-physician providers – and are not limited to any single practice organization.

Why Exhibit at ACU?

This is an opportunity to showcase products and services beneficial to conference attendees. Exhibiting enables direct interaction with the attendees and builds long-term relationships. The size of this conference enables exhibitors to connect, one on one, with potential customers. Sponsorships will increase visibility and communications with members of the Association in a way that maximizes the return on your investment. This is your opportunity to network with ACU attendees and engage with providers committed to the underserved. Refreshment breaks will be in the Exhibit area and there will be ample time for attendees to visit the tabletops.
