Our Champions

The Taking Action on Overuse team is proud to showcase our Safety-Net Clinical Value Champions. During their year-long fellowship, they received training, guidance and implementation support for their work developing competencies to reduce medical overuse. Each champion completed their training experience in March 2020 by participating in a virtual capstone meeting to share their experiences and learnings with a large national audience.
