About the event

The ANEW Way Forward event is an inaugural one-day symposium that fosters a collaborative learning community for researchers and practitioners in behavioral health and primary care settings.

Come join us at the University of Pennsylvania for:

  • Skills-based lectures and seminar sessions delivered by national experts to prepare for the evolving primary care landscape
  • Poster presentations on cutting-edge research and successful pilot programs in the field
  • Unique networking opportunities designed for symposium attendees

The ANEW symposium is dedicated to providing a national platform for addressing gaps in integrated behavioral health training among the primary care workforce.

Support for the symposium comes from joint collaboration between ANEW and the NCIBH:

Advancing Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW)

The HRSA-funded Advancing Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) grant focuses on developing and implementing clinical training for primary care APRNs interested in caring for underserved populations through the Penn School of Nursing’s A4CP: APRNs for Community Practice Program.

The National Center for Behavioral Health (NCIBH)

The National Center for Behavioral Health (NCIBH) is an innovation hub for testing, developing, and disseminating best practices to improve the quality, accessibility, and effectiveness of treatment for mental health and substance use disorders in primary care through effective training models


Open to all researchers, practitioners, students, and educators in mental health and/or primary care with an interest in integrated behavioral health training and education.
