Upcoming Conferences and CME

Last Chance to Register For Practice Fitness Series Part 2: Health Reform and Practice Transformation
January 19 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Regardless of who occupies the White House, there is great change in primary care pediatrics. Payers are moving away from fee-for-service models. There is a greater demand for pediatric care providers to include care coordination and behavior health services. In order to have a significant impact on health, primary care offices can’t be isolated entities but must be part of a larger community. Join us on January 19, 2017 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. to have dinner, connect with your colleagues and learn more about how to prepare your practice for health care reforms that are coming. Learn what the health care environment may look like with a shift in federal government leadership, and how you can find and use resources for those and other changes. Our keynote speaker for the evening is Kelly J. Kelleher, MD, director of the Center for Innovation in Pediatric Practice in the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
