The 2021 TCOM Conference will be in the horse capital of the world – Lexington, Kentucky! Our theme for this year’s TCOM conference is “Getting a Leg Up On TCOM” – hosted by the Praed Foundation
All members of the international TCOM collaborative are invited to submit proposals to share your work. Download the Call For Proposals document below.
Back in September of 2019, the TCOM group established the Center for Innovation in Population Health (IPH) in Lexington at the University of Kentucky. Since moving to Kentucky, we have gotten to experience the southern charm and hospitality that Lexington has to offer.
Whether you submit a proposal to present or not, we look forward to seeing all of you in Lexington, Kentucky.
For those that have yet to attend an in-person TCOM Conference, we think you will find it a unique conference experience of a large group of committed and humble people seeking to share and learn from each other. We hope you join us in growing this culture of collaboration.
