The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of our daily lives, and how the MMA hosts events is one of them. Our 2020 Annual Conference is no longer going to be an in-person event, and we will instead deliver important and engaging content to attendees virtually.
With the virtual platform, the conference will be spread out over several days to maximize learning and engagement while minimizing inconvenience. The conference will include many of the activities seen at past annual conferences including education sessions, policy discussions, MMA awards, MMA business update, the president’s inauguration, and the medical student/resident/fellow poster symposium.
Conference sessions will help mobilize physicians and physicians-in-training to create change, including assessing what role they can play in addressing issues of equity in health care. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to evaluate the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, assess opportunities for growth in our health care systems and discuss tools needed to address future public health emergencies.
