Attend the FM Clinical Forum

Thank you for attending our 2020 Forum!

The 2020 Family Medicine Virtual Clinical Forum brought together a mix of physicians, medical students, and other health professionals to learn about some of the most important issues of the day – the pandemic and vaccines, health care disparities, racism in medicine and social determinates of health. Ted O’Connell, MD moderated our first keynote session with a panel discussion titled Lessons, Silver Linings and Stories from COVID-19 where we heard about project Room Key, Career Sparks and Keepers of the House, hopeful stories of how people made positive impacts during an otherwise chaotic time in our history. Monica Hahn, MD and Stephen Richmond, MD delivered a powerful keynote address on equity and inclusion and then continued to engage with our learners through follow up sessions in December and January where attendees were encouraged to take steps to address racism in medicine. Mark Ghaly, MD, MPH, Secretary of California Health and Human Services provided learners with important recognition of their roles on the front lines of the pandemic. In addition, Rishi Manchanda, MD, reminded us of how important it is to look upstream to the social determinates of health to broaden the care of our patients and our communities.

Other sessions were offered along with engagement sessions like a mindful stress reduction session, Monkey Brain, Alpaca Tour, FM Fierce, a Scavenger Hunt and of course, the #DocsWhoRock virtual jam session.

"Race-based medicine provides a false sense of health equity and undermines the health disparities engendered by racism. Our learning does not stop here. Next step: critical self-reflection. Such amazing speakers at #FMForum20!!"

"We're going to be called upon not to be heroes once or twice, but again and again in the coming weeks. And I want to figure out how to support you; it's going to be tough, and you are the ones carrying a huge load."
Secretary Mark Ghaly, MD
