Making Waves Web Banner THANK YOU

The 73rd Annual Assembly & Exhibition was held July 30 - August 1, 2020, at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort - Baytowne Conference Center in Destin, FL. Overall there were about 85 attendees who either attended live or virtually and 21 exhibitors. The exhibit hall was a mix of familiar faces along with new supporters!

With 15.0 hours of Prescribed Credits, there was a combination of local faculty as well as nationally known faculty who presented. Thursday night was the Welcome Reception that was free to all attendees and their families, which was a huge success and sponsored by Aetna Better Health of Louisiana! As usual, Friday brought our General Assembly, with updates brought to us from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana and the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Topics of the assembly were presented by both local speakers and national speakers including:
