DPC Ohio "Unsummit" Program Outline

The DPC Ohio "Unsummit" on Saturday January 18th in Columbus will be presented by physicians and business persons involved in Direct Primary Care, most of whom attended the DPC National Summit in St Louis in 2013.  The content will generally reflect similar issues and strategies that exist nationally.  Specific Ohio context will be included , but it's not a lot different.

Social Media will be used to supplement the learning at this meeting.  (A two may be online/Skype.)
