I am pleased to introduce a new member benefit – the online eNewsletter.
In an effort to offer new and needed benefits, while using the latest technology, this online eNewsletter is the perfect way to ensure accurate and timely information is given to all members.
Speaking of new member benefits, the week before the Annual Meeting, IPMA will launch its newly redesigned website. Designed and formatted with you in mind, access the information you need easily while still enjoying the Member Only Channel that you deserve. Additionally, the new website will be a portal of information on podiatric medicine for the public. Encourage all of your patients to access and utilize our new website. Please watch for further details including the actual launch date.
I look forward to seeing each of you at the 2018 Annual Meeting, September 6-8 held at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel. Earn Up to 21* Hours of CE with a variety of sessions with topics ranging from the latest surgical updates, complications panels, coding, orthotics, sports medicine, diabetes/wound care, MRI/imaging modalities and much more. We are pleased to announce that House Republican Leader Jim Durkin will be speaking on Friday, September 7th. Hear the latest news and updates from Springfield and stay informed of the important political changes in healthcare as they apply to podiatry. On Saturday, September 8th, don’t miss the valuable session “How to Survive in This New Insurance Market.” This panel discussion will be highlighting Blue Cross and state Medicaid issues, and will provide valuable insight in navigating the ever-changing market. And finally, the Annual Meeting will also offer sessions to enrich your well-rounded practice with experts on nutrition, regenerative medicine, and antibiotics updates as well as sessions that discuss important issues directly impacting the future of podiatry with panels on full licensure and value-based compensation.
