Hello and welcome to the February e-Bulletin!
But can I be honest? February is always a rough month to get through. The shortened days and cold weather becoming more bothersome, an odd lethargy can set in making it difficult to stay motivated, I have found.
Thankfully, like all seasons, February holds a lot of promise and joy… in addition to bringing us one month closer to Spring. Beyond giving us Super Bowl LIV (always a good excuse for eating your favorite seven-layer dip), the Oscars (always a good excuse for putting off charting to cuddle with family on the couch to watch a movie), and venturing out to some outstanding cultural and community events in our state, February 2020 also brings us…
Our Education Co-chairs, Drs. Stacey Ross and Kelly Ryan, and their committee, have curated a wonderful event that you will not want to miss!
Come get evidenced-based and best practice updates on bread-and-butter topics: chronic hepatitis C, adult ADHD, urinary incontinence in women, improving the health outcomes of our pregnant patients.
Still not sure about regulation around medical cannabis/CBD, anti-vaping efforts and the network of controlling the costs of prescription drugs? We have updates!
Finally, our own MDAFP Board Chair, Ramona Seidel, MD FAAFP will be kicking off the day with practical practice management tips to help improve and bolster our day-to-day wellbeing.
It is going to be a great day! I look forward to seeing you all in a couple weeks to catch up, and hear how things are going for you, February-wise or other. Until then, I recently found encouragement and wisdom in Mr. Ashe’s words. Hope you do too.
