Join your colleagues for the premiere event for Colorado physicians, the 2018 CMS Annual Meeting
by Kate Alfano, CMS Communications Coordinator
Make plans to join the Colorado Medical Society for the most anticipated event of the year for Colorado physicians: the 2018 CMS Annual Meeting. Building on the success of previous meetings, a workgroup of physicians and medical students is already hard at work to craft entertaining social events and high-quality professional development sessions to help you refresh and recharge in your medical career. The 2018 meeting will be held Sept. 14-15 at the Vail Marriott in Vail, Colo., and we hope you and your family will make plans to join us in this idyllic mountain retreat. As always, there is no registration fee for members and we have secured discounted group pricing on lodging at the hotel.
New this year, the conference will conclude with Saturday night’s presidential gala, giving attendees and their guests more time to explore beautiful Vail, a top Rocky Mountain destination, on Sunday. In addition to the hiking, biking and viewing of fall colors attendees know they will enjoy, Vail Oktoberfest – with Bavarian beer, music and dancing, traditional fare, yodeling and alpenhorn blowing – will be held in Vail Village Sept. 14-16, and the Vail Farmers’ Market and Art Show will be held Sept. 16. Childcare is provided during conference events with advanced registration.
Our annual meeting is devoted to celebrating the community of medicine, bringing Colorado physicians together for social, clinical and intellectual stimulation. Attendees will experience informative panel discussions and worthwhile workshops on the hottest topics in medicine – such as the opioid epidemic and health care reform – led by an impressive slate of state and national speakers. Once again, medical students can experience an engaging medical student track, providing special training to the next generation of physicians, while also experiencing the main conference.
You won’t want to miss the CMS signature events: Friday evening’s exhibitor reception with great food, live music and fun catching up with your colleagues; the COMPAC Luncheon midday Saturday for insightful political commentary; and the black-tie Presidential Gala and COPIC dessert buffet Saturday evening to kick off the presidency of Debra Parsons, MD, FACP.
We can’t wait to welcome you and your family to the 2018 CMS Annual Meeting Sept. 14-15. Find more information and register online at www.cms.org/events/annual-meeting.
