Summary of DPC Ohio UnSummit IV: The Culture Grows and Glows

The DPC Ohio culture moved ahead on February 20th as 24 fans of DPC gathered at the Dublin Integrated Education Center.  Medical students, residents, a FNP student, Family Physicians, General Internists, a Rheumatologist, a practice manager and six faculty shared information and ideas in a stimulating one day UnSummit.
From Cincinnati to Columbus to Cleveland to Beavercreek, Bellfontaine, and Waverly, OH to Uniontown, PA and SouthBend, IN, Physicians in Direct Primary Care disclosed their strategies for success and the challenges behind and ahead.   Dr Jonas, your host for the Dr. Synonymous Show, was one of the presenters  (DPC for Geezers: Hybrids and Pitfalls, DPC National Tour Online, and Networking and Teaching DPC).  He reviews some of the highlights of the meeting and ponders what may lie ahead.  At least two future interviews for the Dr S Show were assured from the people and ideas at this enthusiastic session in an incredible facility: The Dublin Integrated Education Center on the OU Dublin, Ohio Campus.
The Center for Innovation in Family and Community Health thanks the FMEC for their help planning and announcing the meeting and to LibertyDirect for help with sponsorship.  Special thanks to onsite and ongoing CIFCH member, Patrick Jonas (my oldest son), for his efforts and to FMEC staffer Shayla Rammel for her help with the preparatory work online and through social media.
