The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians, in collaboration with the Georgia Primary Care Association, hosted its annual 2022 Summer Family Medicine Weekend on June 16-19, 2022 at Hotel Effie in Miramar Beach, Fla.
Over 200 GAFP members and exhibitors convened in-person at the Hotel Effie for educational sessions and fellowship, after a two-year hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The GAFP Summer CME Weekend provides family physicians and other primary care clinicians with current medical information designed to strengthen their knowledge base and introduce new concepts and clinical practice skills through a cost-effective, evidence-based, and diverse educational program.
The two and a half day conference included clinical education on Early Detection of Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease, Legal and Staff Aspects of Workplace Surveillance and other leadership and clinical topics. GAFP member Dr. Monica Parker presented Breast and Gynecologic Cancer Updates, and How to Effectively Implement Accountability Without Losing Staff with William J. Kuzbyt, PsyD gave members leadership and administrative guidance. In addition, two lunch lectures were sponsored by the Georgia Department of Public Health.
Fellowship and fun were also a hallmark of the family friendly conference, including the welcome reception on Thursday and the sandcastle building competition on Friday. The 2023 Annual Summer CME Family Weekend is scheduled for June 7-11, 2023 at the Wild Dunes Resort located in Isle of Palms, S.C.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the Georgia Academy. We will host the annual meeting Nov. 10-12, 2022 in Atlanta at the Atlanta Marriott Northwest at Galleria. Registration opens in August on www.gafp.org.
