Members are encouraged to register for the 2019 KMA Annual Meeting, to be held Sept. 20-22 at the Louisville Mar-riott East, as soon as possible. This year’s theme, Moving Medicine: Together for Tomorrow, will celebrate and encour-age the unification of physicians around issues of importance, particularly public health advocacy.
The 2019 KMA Annual Meeting will feature a dynamic array of speakers, as well as opportunities for networking and engagement among colleagues.
Russell Coleman, United States Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky, and other law enforcement and public health officials will headline Saturday’s Kentucky Physicians Leadership Academy with a session titled “Opioids and the Federal Law Enforcement Perspective.”
The gathering will also include a one-of-a-kind television experience, with KMA members being featured in a forum-style show produced by Kentucky Educational Television (KET). KET will film its special, Prescription for Health: A KET Forum in conjunction with the KMA Annual Meeting on Saturday, Sept. 21. It will include a panel of KMA physicians, health policy and public health officials discussing some of the state’s most pressing public health issues. Moderation will be provided by award-winning Connections host Renee Shaw, with Kentucky Health host and Greater Louisville Medical Society President Wayne Tuckson, M.D. interviewing additional physicians in the audience. CME will be provided, and the special will be aired across the state sometime in the fall of 2019.
Space for this event is limited and a separate ticket is required, so members are encouraged to register for Annual Meeting as soon as possible. Registration is available online at www.kyma.org/2019-annual-meeting. Hotel reservations at the Louisville Marriott East can also be made by visiting the Annual Meeting webpage.
