2019 OMA Annual Conference

Saturday, September 28, 2019, 3:00 PM

4.5 CME Credits Available Physicians and physician assistants are uniquely positioned to serve as leading voices in healthcare policy. When they are not equipped to rise to that responsibility, others do. But amidst the daily demands of practice and the one-to-one focus on each patient, how can providers find the time and energy to put their expertise to work in the public sphere? REGISTER NOW to join your OMA colleagues on September 28, 2019 at the Hilton Portland Downtown for a full day of education, networking, and community. The event is designed to help participants reclaim their ability to affect change within the healthcare system, and to prepare them in practical ways to advocate for their profession and their patients.  Attendees will leave the event with new insight into some of the most acute issues affecting their practices.
