The 2nd annual 2020 Heartland Interprofessional Education Conference will be held virtually on July 23-24 and is a collaborative effort between Creighton University, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Clarkson College and Des Moines University.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the second Heartland Interprofessional Education Conference (HIPE) that is now jointly sponsored by four organizations, said Gail Jensen, PT, PhD, FAPTA, interim executive director for the Center for Interprofessional Practice, Education and Research (CIPER) at Creighton, and dean of the Graduate School and College of Professional Studies. “Our collaboration represents growth of interest in interprofessional practice, education and research in response to critical health needs in our communities.
