16th annual TCOM Conference

We’re going virtual!

Transformational Collaborative Outcomes Management (TCOM) is an approach grounded in the philosophy of a shared vision to help people achieve their wellness goals. The national TCOM Conference offers a platform for the TCOM collaborative to learn from each other and share their experiences. While we are sad we will be unable to gather in person this year, we believe creating a virtual space to collaborate, learn and grow is more important than ever. 

Our current global pandemic has highlighted–and in many ways, expanded–the racial and socioeconomic disparities in our communities and institutions. The world feels divided on many issues, yet the TCOM desire to create a shared vision remains the same. That shared vision cannot happen unless we are committed to providing opportunities for learning and collaborating across healthcare, child welfare, behavioral health and other complex systems. We need each other in order to serve youth and families in equitable and transformative ways. We hope you’ll join us virtually on November 11-13th, 2020. 

Early Bird Registration is now open! Please go to our Eventbrite page for further details and to register:
