  2. Blue Sky: Lessons Learned

    Thanks to everyone who contributed to making the Blue Sky event on March 18th a success! 151 staff and faculty from 26 locations joined in an invigorating conversation with Drs. Frank deGruy (Chair, University of Colorado Department of Family Medicine) and Macaran Baird (Head, University of Minnesota Department of Family Medicine and Community Health). We appreciate everyone who was able to contribute in person as well as those who kept things running at our clinics and administrative offices.

    Recordings of the talks are available on the DFMCH ReCHARGED website. Staff and faculty were most excited by ideas of:

    • community engagement
    • allowing room for innovation (including failure!)
    • working in teams to support primary care
