Speakers will detail collaborative efforts to move beyond traditional boundaries of medical care, and how to make connections with local public health systems to create an integrated and sustainable delivery system. Innovations in Maryland, specifically the State Health Improvement Process (SHIP) and Health Enterprise Zones, will be highlighted. 
The opening keynote will be provided by Dr. Joshua Sharfstein, Secretary of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, and closing remarks will be provided by Dr. Freeman Hrabowski, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, which is also hosting the meeting.
