One day registration options available onsite: $250, Thursday 6/28 — $150, Friday, 6/29 — $125, Saturday, 6/30

The ANPA Annual Meeting features three full-day meetings, providing participants’ knowledge related to the challenges facing minority health care providers in the provision of clinical and therapeutic services for diseases and conditions related to a variety of medical specialties. Collaboration is defined as a joint communication and decision-making process with the goal of satisfying the health care needs of a target population.  The basis of collaboration is the belief that quality patient care is achieved by the contribution of all care providers.  Team members determine the team’s mission and common goals: work interdependently to define and treat patient problems; and learn to accept and capitalize on disciplinary differences, differential power and overlapping roles.

Engage all five senses at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

You can also race a cheeta or olympic runner and gaze at towering dinosaurs.
Explore Klyde Warren Park.
Klyde Warren Park has completely changed the way Dallasites and visitors enjoy the city. Connecting Downtown and the Arts District to residential Uptown, the 5.2-acre park sits atop a busy interstate, but you’d never know from the parks’ massive green space and abundance of trees. The parks’ busy activity schedule keeps visitors entertained with live performances, movie nights, a children’s area, a dog park and daily food trucks.
Head east of Downtown to the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Gardens in the Dallas Arboretum.
Each of the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Gardens’ 17 galleries overlooks beautiful White Rock Lake. Highlights include the Texas Skywalk, a walkway high in the trees perfect for spotting local birds and nests, and the Texas Native Wetlands gallery, a boardwalk adventure through grass tunnels to see plants and animals in their native habitats. Learning has never been so fun.
Get a true Texas experience at the Great Trinity Forest, home to Texas Horse Park.
Trek out on the park’s beautifully preserved trails for a horse ride with the family. Located only eight miles south of Downtown, Texas Horse Park sits on a section of the Great Trinity Forest that was part of Davy Crockett’s legacy and a large Native American archeological site. Now, the whole family can enjoy an authentic trail ride through the serene Texas woodlands.
Get lost in the savannah at the Dallas Zoo.
Named one of the “20 Best Zoos” by USA Today, the Dallas Zoo offers a global perspective on wildlife and their habitats. Catch a glimpse of the zoo’s Golden Girls, a herd of elephants that call the Elephants of the Savannah exhibit home. For a more hands-on experience, the giraffe ridge is the place to be for an eye-level encounter as you hand feed the tallest animal on land.
See Dallas from 500 feet at Reunion Tower’s GeO-Deck.
The most recognizable building on the iconic Dallas skyline sits at the western end of Downtown. At GeO-Deck, you can enjoy the view from more than 300 feet and interact with Halo, the deck’s digital information system, to learn about Dallas and its landmarks. A nightly light show lights up the Dallas sky and occasionally sends out congratulatory messages to our local sports teams
