Closing the Gap


Provider Symposium

The Gateway Medical Society offers an annual provider symposium for continuing education for health professionals. This program facilitates communication, collaboration and networking among health professionals. It also provides a forum to discuss issues which aid in the advocacy for health reform and minority health issues. Additionally, we look to increase minority representation in the healthcare workforce.

Who Should Attend

Physicians, nurses, social workers and other multidiscipline network and community-based professionals. Participants can often receive CME credits.
