A few things to update you on:
1. There have been a few additions and adjustments to our Spring agenda. Most notably, you’ll see our Thursday lunch session sponsored by ACHL now has a title, full description, and faculty. It’ll be a unique session focused on the CME implications of the rise in legalization of medical marijuana across the United States. Both the president and CEO of the ACCME, Graham McMahon, as well the president of the ACEHP, Steven Kawczak, are confirmed as panelists. Should be interesting. And, of course, I couldn’t resist a few wisecracks based on the session topic (ie, “Let’s change the start of the session to 4:20” and “Gives a new meaning to the term ‘joint provider'”). Feel free to come up with one of your own in the Comments section below this post.
2. You have less than a week to submit your entry for CMEpalooza Pursuit. We’ve got $500 in Amazon gift cards to give away, but like anything else, you can’t win if you don’t participate. All of the information you need to play can be found in our recent post.
3. I had the “pleasure” of sitting next to Derek at a recent Philadelphia 76ers game. The dude is the most pessimistic “fan” I have ever met. The opposing team scored the first basket of the game and he grabbed his coat and was ready to leave. He wasn’t even kidding. As usual, I ignored him and he sat back down, only to moan and groan the remainder of the evening. The 76ers have lost only one home game since the start of the new year – I’ll let you guess which night that occurred on.
Happy spring everyone. The snow will melt eventually. I hope.
