Conference Chair's Message

Calling all Family Medicine!

We warmly invite you to submit your abstract submissions to our 2023 Conference in St Louis, MO. This conference focuses primarily on practice management including practice transformation, continuous quality improvement, and any new developments in health care.

Whether you are an educator, a learner, independently practicing, part of the care team or an administrator, we want to hear your voice and ideas. This conference is ideal for sharing, networking and disseminating all things cutting edge in the practice of family medicine. It is the place to find new ideas
and get re-energized in our work. In fact, coming together again has been truly invigorating and we hope you will seriously consider joining us in 2023.

We especially encourage participants from independent practices, group practices, residency practices, and safety net clinics. We also encourage participation from the whole interdisciplinary team. The conference steering committee has identified the following encouraged topics (you can see in the general instructions to the left) but we are also open to other topics outside this list. 

On behalf of my colleagues on the conference steering committee, we look forward to reviewing your submissions and ultimately seeing you in St. Louis in 2023!

Alicia Jacobs, MD
2023 Conference Chair
