‘Personal Journeys’ Shared at NCMS LEAD Conference

Another exciting feature at this year’s NCMS LEAD Health Care Conference, Oct. 3-4 in Raleigh, is learning directly from your colleagues as they share their personal journey in health care – whether it involves telemedicine; social media, moving to value, hiring a scribe or other timely topics.

For instance, Diego Garza, MD, MPH, will reveal “The Art of Telemedicine” and how to conduct virtual exams with the same skill and efficiency as those in a traditional practice setting.

Sara Jiang, MD, will explain “How I Build My Professional Brand on Social Media,” sharing how she uses this platform to build networks, learn and engage.

Art Apolinario, MD, MPH, who practices in rural Clinton, NC, will describe how his comprehensive family care clinic transformed to value-driven care.

Ron Laney, MD, MPH will talk about how fellow physicians in his community came together to advocate for health issues they believe in, taking action on population health, distracted driving and gun violence.

And there are more of your peers who will share their stories as well as other educational sessions, MEDTalks by this year’s class of Leadership College scholars and plenty of time for socializing and fun all at this year’s NCMS LEAD Conference, Oct. 3-4. Registration opening soon!
