Additional Information

Dear Colleagues,

40 years!

That represents a full professional career’s worth of world class continuing medical education offerings. Nothing could quite replace the experience of a full on, unencumbered in-person conference, and it is our pleasure to return to the Lodge at Spruce Peak slope-side at Stowe Mountain Resort for an historic celebration to provide just that.

Adopting a mid-week schedule format, starting with the MLK holiday weekend, will provide for a family vacation with much less crowded skiing and dining experiences and more affordable lift and lodging rates. You can also take advantage of our conference rate immediately before and after the meeting to expand a personal or family experience.

It is challenging to put together a generalist meeting that can speak to the interests and needs of primary care and specialty care providers but doing so is at the core of our success. The CME committee has worked hard to focus on areas of clinical and technical knowledge. that are subject to new diagnostic modalities, new therapeutic interventions, or changing paradigms that are “must know” knowledge, regardless of your specialty.

We are very pleased to have Dr. George “Bud” Higgins back along with many of our veteran faculty that have, in no small part, kept us at the top for 4 decades.

Food and beverage services for breakfasts, coffee breaks, après-ski offerings, and our 40th Anniversary Party (featuring The Conniptions Fits) are included in the registration fee which increases not only your monetary value, but also the social and networking value. Guest passes for food and beverage are offered for sale once again. Also, optional workshops bring back requested faculty and topics. In addition we will be offering a session on Zcodes that can increase your CME hours by 20 (the NCCPA will double that!) Don't hesitate to contact us for more information.

This meeting continues to attract a national interest to a resort destination in prime season so if you have not joined us in the past, please review the program and discover the unique experience that is the PAAV Annual Winter CME Conference.

We look forward to having you with us in Stowe in January.

Sincerely,

Cary J. Stratford, PA-C
Marge Bower PA-C Co-chairpersons

The PA Profession’s Key Decision Makers

Do you dedicate 20% of your marketing budget to reaching PAs? You should! Currently, PAs write over 500 million prescriptions each year and make hundreds of millions of OTC recommendations annually. Plus, over 75% of PAs are responsible for meeting with pharmaceutical representatives – many as the primary contact. PAs have a genuine influence on the prescribing habits of other professional colleagues and supervising physicians.

Often charged with making medical purchases for their practices and departments, PAs are the people making and influencing buying decisions for a wide range of products. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics listed physician assistants as one of the top 20 fastest-growing professions in the nation, projected to double by 2024. If your company markets to physicians, it should also be marketing to PAs.

Want to recruit the best PAs? Whether you’re interested in filling current vacancies, or attracting the best candidates for the future, our meeting has a track record of attracting experienced and accomplished PAs. Your booth will put you in contact with candidates from across the region. In addition, you’ll make contacts that will help you attract the best and the brightest PAs for years to come. PAs are eager to exchange ideas and experiences with their colleagues and with professional representatives. They are highly motivated to stay current about the latest products and innovations, eager to learn, and easily adapt positive changes into their practices.

Join us in Stowe!

GENERAL SESSION: FROM ZERO TO ZCODES

This workshop will be held on Tuesday, January 18 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm, presented by Kim Zuber, PA-C.

The goal of health care delivery is to help patients. Sometimes, social drivers can interact with a patient’s health, quality of life, and/or health outcomes. These are collectively referred to as: Social Determinants of Health (SDOH). While we know that SDOH affect all aspects of life, we do NOT know if they are tied with specific chronic disease states. We need to collect data to tie health outcomes to SDOH, and we need YOU to help with this. Z codes were developed in 2018 but > 2% of all charts are coded with Z codes. PAs, as a group, have a chance to change this, while collecting 20 CME 1 credits at the same time!
(Note: NCCPA will DOUBLE this to 40 CME 1)
