It looks to be a busy day at the Summit, with two significant events on the agenda: a celebration of the 20th anniversary of the CPE's first class and a population health panel. 

Saturday looks to be a busy day at the 2018 AAPL Physician Leadership Summit, with two significant events on the agenda at the Sheraton Hotel in Boston.

  • At noon in the Grand Ballroom, a luncheon will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first “graduating class” of Certified Physician Executives. The association developed the credential to answer a growing industry call for formal certification of physician leaders. In the two decades since, nearly 3,000 physician leaders have completed the certification process and bear the CPE credential. For more information about the celebration, see our story here.
  • At 3 p.m. in the Constitution Ballroom, a panel on population health will showcase the Healthy Nevada Project. Tony Slonim, MD, DrPH, CPE, FAAPL, of Renown Health and Joe Gryzmski, PhD, of Desert Research Institute will discuss how researchers are using genetics, environmental data and individual health date to achieve better health with a defined region of the country. For more on the effort, see our story here.

For information about these events and others, visit the association service center on the second floor.
