LEAD 2021 Is Underway

We may be connecting differently these days, but the NCMS’ tradition of holding innovative annual meetings continues with this year’s LEAD Health Care Conference.

LEAD is underway!

For the latest details on the conference, please see the LEAD website:  www.ncms-lead.com.

The goal for the 2021 LEAD Conference is to bring the health care community together during what has proven to be one of the most challenging times. As the LEAD tagline suggests – Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Discovery – this conference will be oriented around sharing knowledge, perspectives, stories and ideas for health care and the practice of medicine for the future.  What can we learn from each other that will inspire, enrich, and provoke thoughts moving forward.

Some topics we will examine include:

  • Lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic;
  • Equity in medicine;
  • Well-being among health care professionals;
  • The commoditization of health care;
  • And much more, including our annual MEDTalks presentations, Virtual Scientific  Poster Session, and a Virtual North Carolina Medical Society Open House.
