Collaborative Meeting of VMS, AAPVT, ACPVT, ACSVT, VTAFP & VPA
Event on 2015-11-06 08:30:00
Please plan on joining us in attending the first collaborative meeting held with the Vermont Medical Society, American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont Chapter, American College of Physicians Vermont Chapter, American College of Surgeons Vermont Chapter, Vermont Academy of Family Physicians and the Vermont Psychiatric Association.  The 2015 meeting is innovative by  incorporating the clinical meetings of five specialty societies which will enhance cross pollination of ideas and networking across specialties.   The Friday program will include a variety of CME presentations that should appeal to all members of the medical and collaborating specialty societies.  As a special treat, noted musician Jon Gailmor will be performing at 6:00 p.m. as we dine, unwind and relax with our physician colleagues and friends. The Saturday morning program includes CME sessions on the legalization of marijuana and the Shumlin Administration’s pursuit of a Medicare waiver. Both these topics will dominate the upcoming legislative session. Our luncheon keynote speaker is Green Mountain Care Board Chair Al Gobeille who will address the importance of physician leadership in Vermont’s health care reform effort.   During the VMS Annual business meeting, we will discuss the adoption of new VMS policies on topics relevant to the upcoming legislative session, including the establishment of an interstate compact on physician licensure and principles related to an all-payer waiver.   At our evening awards banquet, VMS will honor four individuals who have each made a unique contribution to improving the physical and mental health of Vermonters.  The AAPVT Chapter and VTAFP will also honor an individual from their organizations.    We hope you will join your colleagues for an informative and celebratory event.
