FMEC Northeast Regional Meeting: "Health for the Nation and the World: Putting People First"

Come to Arlington, VA October 23-26 and learn with the Family Medicine Education Consortium team of educators.  Medical students, residents, faculty and others involved in Family Medicine Education will celebrate together the challenge of transforming the health care system in a way that better serves individuals, families and communities.

In a time of disruption, no one knows where the healthcare system is headed or how to get it going the "right" way.  It costs too much and is misdirected,  mired in "Meaningless Use" and "Transformationitis".

Who cares enough to risk anything to do what's right?  The FMEC for one.  The meeting includes preconferences such as the Innovators Network which already has played a key role in upgrading the Direct Primary Care movement.

I love this meeting.  Medical students from the northeastern United States, Residents from fifty or more programs with displays about their programs and Family Medicine faculty from the Northeast- like five hundred people who are excited about Family Medicine.

Breakfast tables to discuss interest areas and solutions, keynoters about healthcare solutions and educational dilemmas, space to sit down and talk with others who have common interests, book authors to sign and discuss their book, Door prizes for students at the Residency Fair.
