2019 Annual Meeting
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 Emmy award-winning Connections host Renee Shaw, with Kentucky Health host and Kentucky Physicians' Leadership Institute graduate Wayne Tuckson, M.D. interviewing additional physicians in the audience. The special will be aired across the state sometime in the fall of 2019.
The theme of this year’s meeting, Moving Medicine: Together for Tomorrow, celebrates and encourages the unification of physicians around issues of importance, particularly public health advocacy.
Several exciting events are planned for the weekend. For additional information, contact KMA Education Director Miranda Mosley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
