We are thrilled with the wonderful feedback received from first session of the 2020 Virtual Family Medicine Clinical Forum Nov. 14-16, 2020 held on our conference platform Pathable. More than 95.5 percent of attendees indicated they were satisfied or very satisfied with their sessions.
On Day One, we celebrated the accomplishments of our new AAFP Fellows and had fun shaking and mixing with CAFP President Dave Bazzo, MD during our virtual Happy Hour.
On Day Two, we were humbled and inspired by the first-hand accounts of service workers and community service organizers who have positively affected their communities during the COVID pandemic. These unsung heroes opened our eyes to all the good going on around us. We heard from Emily Fisher, MD and a two homeless clients about Project Room Key – a program offering hope for more sustainable housing solutions. We met Elaine Patel and a mother-son team and learned about careersparks.org, an organization providing mentorship opportunities for disadvantaged students #BeTheSpark! We also watched the mini-documentary Keepers of the House highlighting the importance of hospital environmental service workers and the meaningful relationships they develop with patients, making them a lifeline to the outside world during the COVID pandemic.
Attendees then enjoyed the wide variety of sessions (13 of them!) as well as the fun activities during the breaks – including a scavenger hunt and finding strategies for mind body and spirit through Haikus.
On Day Three, we were inspired by the powerful message on equity and inclusion. Attendees were encouraged to take steps to address racism in medicine and recognize ways we continue to promote it without even knowing. Another 13 CME sessions were offered along with engagement sessions like a mindful stress reduction course and the #DocsWhoRock virtual jam session. The day concluded with an address by Mark Ghaly, MD, MPH, Secretary of California Health and Human Services, who provided us with important recognition of our role on the front lines of this pandemic and notice that we are in for more hard times.
A range of companies supported the Forum and our virtual exhibit hall. And, we were treated with a virtual tour a Maine Alpaca farm leaving many wondering how to adopt these hypoallergenic, adorable creatures!
