The Roseburg Community Cancer Center (CCC) is spearheading a program that, through the collaboration of our community health care providers, will deliver an annual networking event in which area providers will find value in their daily health care industries. The event focus is to bring meaningful peer-to-peer interaction between health care specialties by getting provider input and involvement. The evening summit is an opportunity to restart conversations that were put on hold for the pandemic, discuss ideas and innovations, and collaborate to better support the health of the Douglas County community.

The annual event is scheduled to take place on a Thursday evening and will start off with a social event including wine and appetizers followed by a fast-paced panel of presenters providing the hot topic of interest in their clinics.

The presentation format will include a limited number of speakers with speed-round presentations for a 5 – 10 minute period. At the conclusion of the panel presentations the event will open up for a question and answer session and peer-to-peer networking.
