UTB Tree
Fireside Chats offer an interactive dialogue with thought leaders from around the country

Grove: a group of trees that grow closely together  

Bough: a main branch of a tree 

Under the Boughs is Cambia Grove's exclusive quarterly fireside chat featuring thought leaders from a broad range of experiences, backgrounds and perspectives to discuss the future of health care. These events illustrate the convening space of our work while symbolizing the interconnectedness we often share as we advance health care transformation.

Under the Boughs offers a chance for the community to take a step back from the day-to-day focus of our work and elevate our perspective to see the broader ecosystem. With new vantage points and insights, we hope to better understand what needs to be fulfilled to achieve a more person-focused and economically sustainable health care system, To find our upcoming events, check out our calendar.
