If you haven’t yet registered for the upcoming TAFP C. Frank Webber Lectureship and Interim Session happening April 8 – 9 in Austin, there’s no time like the present! In addition to the incredible 16.25 CME credits offered Friday and Saturday and our standard council meetings happening Friday morning, we have a series of exciting firsts for TAFP on Saturday.

Our first Member Assembly at Interim Session will take place at breakfast and include a great discussion on trends in health care from author Peter Valenzuela, MD, MBA. Attendees will receive a copy of his new, insightful book Doc-Related.

Our first council forums will also take place Saturday morning, following the Member Assembly breakfast. The intent of these new meetings in our recent governance change is to engage more members in discussion and work of the Academy. You can view the forum agendas here, but here are a few highlights:

  • Sherri Onyiego, MD, with Equality Health will speak during the Council on Health of the Public Forum. Equality Health is a population health company that partners with health plans to transition independent health care providers into value-based payment models.
  • Hear from a high school student and her advisor about HOSA, an organization dedicated to encouraging young people to pursue careers in health professions, during the Council on Workforce and Member Engagement Forum. You’ll learn how TAFP and AAFP are working with them and how you can volunteer.
  • AAFP Innovation Lab and Suki AI will offer a presentation on the future of tech in the exam room at the Council on Medical Practice Forum.

All members are welcome to register for and attend the Member Assembly and the council forums. If you only want to attend these Saturday activities, you can register for “business and other tracks” for $50. The fee includes the book, breakfast, and lunch – a bargain! Click here to register.

And don’t forget about the TAFP Exchange. If you aren’t signed up there yet, it’s a great place to network and engage in discussion with other TAFP members from across the state. It’s also where topics and agenda items are planned for meetings like the Member Assembly, making it a quick and easy opportunity to get involved with TAFP business.

Check out the full Interim Session schedule. We hope to see you there!
