Welcome to Nashville

July 21, 2017

Nashville welcomes you to the APMA 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting (The National). The National is a must-attend event for podiatrists. From offloading workshops, to a surgical blitz, to expert practice advice, to robust dermatology content, The National covers the field of foot and ankle care.

Be sure to join us for the kick-off at the Opening Address at 8 a.m. on Thursday in Presidential D. Our colleague Rob Conenello, DPM, will share his moving experience as a physician turned patient. You won’t want to miss the lessons Dr. Conenello gleaned from his battle with cancer, which we can all apply with our own patients. After the Opening Address, attend the grand opening of the exhibit hall.

Come out to support your alma mater at a friendly competition during the inaugural Podiatry School Student Quiz Bowl from 5:45–7:30 p.m. on Saturday. Enjoy the latest science shaping the practice of podiatry at Track 1: Oral Abstracts Presentation at 10 a.m. on Friday and the Poster Abstracts Symposium at 1 p.m. on Saturday. With more than 110 abstracts submitted this year, the science at The National is the best podiatry has to offer. Young physicians will enjoy the return of Young Physicians’ Lunch-and-Learn sessions Thursday and Friday, as well as content tailored to their needs throughout the program.

Speaking of lunch, if you didn’t sign up to attend one of the five great non-CECH lunch symposia we’re offering Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, be sure to join us at 12:45 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the APMA booth (#1027) for our social media workshops.

Enjoy the benefits of the MACRA/MIPS Update at the Breakfast Symposium at 7 a.m. on Sunday, followed by our renowned Coding Seminar and Ethics presentation at 8:30  a.m.

Be sure to take some time to peruse our exhibit hall and thank the nearly 200 companies on hand to share their products and services, and support podiatric medicine. Please thank our outstanding sponsors who have made this event possible. You’ll have a dedicated chance to enjoy the exhibit hall, along with light refreshments and live music, during our Exhibit Hall Mix and Mingle event from 4–5:30 p.m. on Thursday. Breakfast will be provided at 7 a.m. on Saturday in the exhibit hall. The hall closes at 11 a.m.
