Open Health Care Clinic 3rd Annual Health Education Conference
October 27, 2017

Open Talks Health Conference is a component of Open Health Care Clinic's community health education initiative to provide year-round comprehensive health care training for clinicians, patients and consumers. Held annually in the fall, Open Talks Health Conference provides continuing education units for nurses, social workers and LPCs on various disease states affecting the residents of Baton Rouge.

This year they have dedicated the conference to adolescent health care because they believe addressing a child's needs is essential to promoting healthier behaviors into adulthood, thereby bridging the gap between pediatric and adult primary care.
