The 2018 Beyond Flexner Conference had a theme of Community, Diversity, and Equity and included plenary, workshop and special events around health education in which social mission is present, prominent, and valued to drive health equity and improved health for individuals, communities, and nations. The conference provided tools and strategies for the implementation of interprofessional education/practice, and provided information about social determinants of health, community engagement, disparity reduction, diversity promotion, and value-based health care.

Conference attendees had the opportunity to participate in a variety of community site visits, such as the SPCC Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program, a pipeline program that motivates and helps prepare schoolkids in medically underserved communities for health professions education.
