So, it begins today - The 2012 AAFP National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students. The conference theme this year is "Social Justice & Family Medicine: Turning Advocacy Into Action." My first time here was about 15 years ago. My friend and colleague Dr. Deb Clements tweeted out yesterday "About to begin my 19th National Conference." Lots of great memories here for me. I wrote this post in 2010.
The featured speaker today is Gloria Wilder, MD, MPH who will be at today's Opening Session at 10am Central Time. She is president & CEO of Core Health, a company she founded to advance community wellness and economic development. She is also founder of Justice Speaks, a nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating nationwide dialogue on issues of social justice and equality.
I'm going to be co-presenting with Family Physician Dr. Jay Lee at 11am Central Time on Social Justice, Social Media, and Family Medicine. There is a preview video below on this. In addition, there is a preview video on an FMIG session today. And, there is a segment from last week's Family Medicine Rocks podcast with Resident Chair Dr. Kevin Bernstein. In this video segment, he talks about why students and residents should attend the meeting.
