Emerging Topics in Healthcare, Health Equity and Well-Being

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.
