About This Conference


About CFHA


Physician Spotlight


Training Generations.  Increasingly, the need for a highly trained workforce is the bottleneck that limits the rate of growth in integrated care efforts. This conference will meet those needs by preparing early career professionals for team-based care, by assisting mid-career professionals in repurposing their skills for primary care, and by engaging senior leaders in advocacy and mentorship. With up to 20 CEs available for most professionals this conference is a unique training opportunity. We will also focus on clinician wellness for all stages of professional development.


Multiple Generations. CFHA was founded on the recognition that health care is inherently multigenerational. At CFHA, family is at the heart of health care, and the conference will equip you with skills for providing integrated behavioral health services that embrace individual patients, their families, and their communities.


Denver is the perfect crossroads for this conference at this time. Colorado is finishing a 3 year federally-funded initiative to ensure that 80% of Coloradans have integrated behavioral health services in their primary care office. Colorado boast several universities and training programs at the vanguard of training for integration. Denver is a city hopping with the energy of youth.


More than 700 attendees from all guild groups (eg. family medicine, social work, psychology, marriage & family etc.) and stakeholders (eg. foundations, payers) are expected to attend the 2019 CFHA Conference in downtown Denver, Colorado.
