Frequently Asked Questions

Who attends Hint Summit?

Hint Summit is an event for any and everyone who is passionate about accelerating the Direct Primary Care movement. At past summits, we've had everyone from Direct Primary Care Pioneers to week 1 DPC start-ups, and healthcare reform activists to benefit advisors and consultants. Even entire leadership teams and DPC practices have attended Hint Summit as a group, and what we hear from everyone who attends, is that they leave inspired, excited, educated, and restored in their passion to make Direct Primary Care the new standard of primary care. 

What is Hint's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion at Hint Summit 2023?

To ensure Hint Summit 2023 is inclusive of the diverse experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds that make up the rich community of Direct Primary Care Providers, we strongly encourage members of historically underrepresented groups in DPC—people of color, immigrants, members of the LGBTQ+ community, people with disabilities, and veterans—-to attend.

In an effort to encourage, we provide a DEI Scholarship through our sponsors for Hint Summit that covers the cost of air travel, hotel stay, and summit registration.
