Practical solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s family physicians
Fourteen chapters of the AAFP have joined forces to develop a three-part webinar series to recognize that in the midst of chaos, family physicians have a unique opportunity to harness and forge their own financially successful practice management path.
The primary goal of the series is to provide family physicians and their practice teams high-value education on critical practice management issues during this time of unparalleled crisis in American health care. By learning to be nimble and adapting to change, practices are capitalizing on innovation like never before — hear how a few family medicine practices are thriving.
Aledade, Inc. is supporting this educational program by providing registration services and assisting with live webinar production and post-program archival access. Aledade, Inc. did not have any influence in the development of the CME content. Basic contact information will be collected for webinar registration purposes. At the conclusion of each program, physicians will have the opportunity to complete the program evaluation, receive additional resources, or withdrawal their contact information from the registration database.
Webinars are provided free of charge, so register today!
