What’s most important to you is important to us.
The demands and challenges you face every day within your practice are constantly changing, so we’re changing with you.
We’ve taken the feedback of clinicians in your region and across the country to launch an all-new Annual Conference, beginning with Pri‑Med Midwest this fall. Pri‑Med has expanded its partnership with the American College of Physicians (ACP), and in collaboration with the ACP we will be unveiling an entirely new cutting-edge CME curriculum. The CME sessions will include information on the the latest treatments and therapies, such as: • Obesity in America, presented by the Dietary Counselor and Lifestyle Coach from NBC’s The Biggest Loser, Michael Dansinger, MD • Live Demonstration Orthopedic Exam: See It, Do It • Infectious Disease Updates in Primary Care • Test Your Skills in Difficult Cases: Nephrology, Hypertension, and Atrial Fibrillation But that’s not all… In addition to over 35 new educational sessions, there are many new components of the conference that were created with you in mind. • Three renowned Keynote Speakers including Dr Story Musgrave, a former NASA astronaut and part-time trauma surgeon • SAFE Opioid Prescribing track featuring a faculty “Meet and Greet” and book signing • Easy access to syllabus slides pre-show and the ability to purchase a full set of printed slides pre-show • The opportunity to earn AANP contact hours of continuing education

Keynote Speakers
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17 | 7:45 am Obesity in America from the Dietary Counselor and Lifestyle Coach from The Biggest Loser
Michael Dansinger, MD Nutrition doctor for NBC’s hit primetime series The Biggest Loser, Diabetes Doctor for WebMD, and Director of the Diabetes Reversal Program at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18 | 7:45 am * In Search of Joy in Practice: Innovations in Patient-Centered Care
Christine Sinsky, MD, and Thomas Sinsky, MD Drs Christine and Thomas Sinsky are general internists at Medical Associates Clinic and Health Plans in Dubuque, IA. Both Drs Sinsky were co-authors for an American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation study of high functioning primary care practices, “In Search of Joy in Practice.”

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19 | 7:45 am Mission Control: Professionalism to Medicine
Story Musgrave, MD Astronaut for over 30 years, producer/director of multimedia, landscape architect, heavy equipment operator, innovator with Applied Minds Inc, and professor of design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.

Dr Dansinger will share his insights and opinions about the global obesity epidemic, the USDA food pyramid, popular weight loss diets, reality weight loss shows, losing 100 pounds in 100 days, obesity surgery, reversing type 2 diabetes, how to feed your children, and what to do about “decadent mouth-watering quadruplelayer chocolate molten-lava fudge cake.”

Drs Christine and Thomas Sinsky will discuss innovations that you can use right now in your practice to improve your own satisfaction in your practice and advance the quality of the care you provide to your patients. They will outline the innovations in primary care they personally discovered by visiting 23 high functioning practices as part of a primary care project for the American Board of Internal Medicine.
*The following organization has provided an educational grant in support of the Keynote Session: Lilly USA, LLC

This presentation will look at your patient as a mission, with a very critical outcome, and how to get that mission right the first time and every time. Dr Musgrave will give a dramatic multimedia presentation composed of real life scenarios that illustrate lessons and principles relevant and applicable to frontline patient care. Dr Musgrave has lived such scenarios. He teaches that the principles extracted from experiences can be clear and comprehensible and that, once accepted and embraced, can lead to effective action.
