Emerging Topics in Healthcare

Join your colleagues for MMA’s monthly Physician Forums – opportunities over the lunch hour to stay updated on the latest news, information, and resources on important topics affecting the practice of medicine.  
Each forum will begin with a short presentation, with open discussion to follow. In this series, you will hear from experts on a variety of topics and engage with your peers from across the state of Minnesota. 
Members have free access to these forums; non-members will be charged a fee of $20. 
Once you have completed the registration process, you will receive a receipt email from mma@mnmed.org. The Zoom meeting link will be included in that email.
