rd Annual

Session

Welcome On behalf of the Commission on Continuing Professional Development and the Texas Academy of Family Physicians officers and staff, welcome to TAFP’s 63rd Annual Session and Scientific Assembly. We are pleased to have you at what is sure to be another successful conference. Based on your educational needs, the planning committee has developed a quality CME program with you in mind. The Annual Session schedule is filled with the latest topics from today’s medical headlines including “Pediatrics in Pictures” with Paul Berman, M.D.; “Imaging: Choosing the Appropriate Exam” with Robert Milman, M.D.; “High Blood Sugars: What to do From Prediabetes up Until Insulin” with Thomas Blevins, M.D.; “Painful Joints: When to Treat, When to Inject” with Christopher Parker, D.O.; “Common Skin Conditions in Primary Care” with Christopher Sartori, M.D.; and “Ethics: Withdrawal of Care Issues in a Hospice Patient” with Ronald Crossno, M.D. To complement the educational experience, the Annual Session and Scientific Assembly will include an exciting array of exhibits and special events. The Exhibit Hall is open Friday and Saturday with exhibitors ready to meet your practice needs. Visit them

Scientific Assembly

to learn more about new services and products in the field, develop business relationships, and hear valuable information to improve your practice. While in the hall, stop by the research poster displays on Friday, and play the Treasure Hunt game to win a $100 gift certificate. Join your colleagues from across the state for TAFP’s special events including attendee favorites like Thursday’s Town Hall Meeting on Clinically Integrated Practice Models and the Members’ Reception Saturday afternoon. We present three new events this year: the Member Assembly Luncheon Friday midday, Leadership and Legislative Training Friday afternoon, and the TAFP Foundation Night of Jazz and Art Friday night. The star of the special events will surely be Saturday night’s President’s Party held at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum when we’ll welcome incoming TAFP president Troy Fiesinger, M.D., to his office. This year’s Annual Session and Scientific Assembly is designed just for you and we hope you have a wonderful time with your family medicine “family” in Austin. Thank you for being a part of our program.

I. L. Balkcom IV, M.D. President, Texas Academy of Family Physicians
