Why I Attend Convention

It is important for doctors to attend the 115th NMA Convention in order to stay ahead of the curve in this rapidly changing healthcare environment. The NMA Convention is the most dynamic conference around with the experts and quality CME discussing topics of importance to both clinical medicine and the business of medicine. If you are interested in value added not just volume added healthcare for the communities we serve than the NMA is where you need to come to stay informed and get prepared for the changes to come over the next several years.
