  • Develop an information and communication network to provide consultation, technical assistance, education, and other professional support for community-based primary care practitioners.
  • Increase the number of individuals from minority and underserved communities and populations who enter primary care and allied health professions.
  • Evaluate and assess the public health needs of communities within and among the regions and provide innovative, multi-disciplinary responses to those needs.
