Sail away to fun, socializing, education and more at the 2017 CMS Annual Meeting in Breckenridge

by Kate Alfano, CMS Communications Coordinator

Fun, collegial and informative. These three words summarized last year’s re-engineered CMS Annual Meeting and our 2017 annual meeting workgroup is already hard at work to build on its successful format that emphasized social events and professional development sessions. The 2017 meeting will be held Sept. 15-17 at Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge, and we hope you and your family will make plans to join us. As always, there is no registration fee for members and we have secured discounted group pricing on lodging at the resort.

Once again, our annual meeting will be entirely devoted to celebrating the community of medicine, bringing Colorado physicians together for social, clinical and intellectual stimulation. Attendees will experience informative panel discussions and worthwhile workshops on the hottest topics in medicine, led by an impressive slate of state and national speakers, including:

  • End-of-life care,
  • Loose change/Compassion fatigue with live actors,
  • Cyber security and telehealth,
  • Practice transformation,
  • Alternative practice models,
  • Prescription drug abuse/opioids,
  • Federal health care reform, and more!

We’ll also have special public policy training with Joe Gagen, JD, geared to medical students. Plus, you’ll get to explore beautiful Breckenridge, a top mountain destination in its gorgeous fall colors.

Families can join the fun, too! Childcare will be provided with advanced registration. Breckenridge offers activities for all ages: spa time, history, guided hikes, a saloon tour, ghost tours, gold mine hikes and panning, the Mountain Top Children’s Museum, the Edwin Carter Discovery Center… the list goes on and on!

You won’t want to miss the CMS signature events: a sailing-themed exhibitor reception Friday evening with great food, live music and fun catching up with your colleagues; the COMPAC Luncheon midday Saturday for insightful political commentary; and the black-tie Presidential Gala and COPIC dessert buffet Saturday evening to kick off the presidency of M. Robert Yakely, MD.

We can’t wait to welcome you and your family to the 2017 CMS Annual Meeting Sept. 15-17. Find more information and register online at www.cms.org/events/annual-meeting.
