Program Description

The Defense Health Agency (DHA), J-7, Continuing Education Program Office (CEPO) Clinical Communities Speaker Series (CCSS) events are designed to address the professional practice gaps of our learners in order to improve the care that our health care professionals deliver. This continuing education (CE)/continuing medical education (CME) event is conducted to achieve results that reflect a change in skills, competence, and performance of the health care team, and patient outcomes. Collaboration occurs with the Department of Defense, several government agencies, and other civilian experts for recruitment of academic subject matter experts (SMEs), clinicians, and researchers to present on current promising, evidence-based research and best practices, thus enhancing the overall educational experience.

This event will explore the evidence-based practices in women’s health from the Department of Defense, Defense Health Agency, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Harvard University, Baylor University, University of California, the Veterans Health Administration and other top community practice groups. The educational content will be created by Subject Matter Experts in the ethics, research, academia, and medical domains of military and civilian health care sectors.
