Participant Testimonials

Now in its 24th year the International Conference on Patient-Centered Care has educated, inspired, and motivated over 18,000 participants. The energy and enthusiasm for Planetree’s premier event is like none other. Here is what a few of our guests had to say:

  • Reinforces why we are Planetree and solidifies our core values
  • After attending the Planetree Conference your attention shifts – from I can’t to Why not!?
  • The energy and enthusiasm at a Planetree conference is unlike any other. The presentations are compelling, thought-provoking and touch you at the core of why good care is all about the person at its center. I left with valuable takeaways, new relationships, and opportunities to explore potential synergies with several like-minded organizations. I left excited and energized. Congratulations on a job well done!
