A family practitioner who has been the clinical director for a facility providing primary care to a rural community that includes hundreds of individuals who are HIV sero-positive. An internist who develops outreach programs for migrant farm workers with diabetes. A physician who works with a medically uninsured African-American population in Georgia, a population suffering a disproportionate prevalence of obesity and diabetes. These are just a few of the backgrounds of sponsored guests at the Care Management Institute (CMI)/Permanente Journal-sponsored conference on "Evidence-based Medicine" (EBM), which took place in December 2004, in Costa Mesa, California. Seventeen "community-based" physicians from around the country were nominated for sponsorship by Kaiser Permanente's (KP) Community Benefit Program.
