ACOI Conference

LLP041: Recap of my trip to the ACOI Conference

Every now and then I get to take a “Vacation” away from taking care of patients but being that I have never been the vacation type I always seem to end up at a medically related function. This time I end up in Washington D.C., a place I hadn't been in almost 10 years when I was applying to medical school. I had a fabulous time there if you take away the fact that I spent my first night in my room as I was still getting over a sinus infection my kids gave me before I left. The topics were amazing and I got to me ZdoggMD (Dr. Damania) which was one of the highlights of the trip. Like most medical conferences there was plenty updates to learn so during this episode I discuss wants new in the fields of HIV, domestic violence and opioid epidemic. It didn't make the podcast but I also got to chance to listen to a great speech by a friend and fellow fraternity member (deja vu) Dr. David Pierre, who talked to the crowd about Perfecting your Craft.
