Join healthcare providers and community leaders as we dive into Northeast Florida's most concerning health issues and work towards unified solutions.

The Duval County Medical Society Foundation's Annual Future of Healthcare Conference looks at the top health issues adversely affecting the Northeast Florida community. The 2018 Conference will specifically focus on the issues of physical fitness/obesity, HIV, opioid epidemic, health literacy, mental health wellness, and violent crimes with guns. 

Attendees will include local and state healthcare professionals, area physician groups, health and wellness directors of all area universities, leaders of nonprofit organizations, city and state political leaders, large area business leaders, and others who are interested in and can affect change in the local health environment.

On Monday evening, we'll kick off the event with a Welcome Reception highlighting our exhibitors and generous sponsors. Over dinner, you'll have the opportunity to hear keynote speeches from Governor Rick Scott, Barbara McAneny, MD, President-Elect of the American Medical Association, and Peter Rummel, real estate entrepreneur.

Tuesday will include a slate full of local, state and national perspectives on the challenging topics at play in our region: the opioid epidemic, obesity and fitness, mental health, HIV, violent crimes with guns and health literacy. The program will also have ample time for networking and visiting the exhibit area.



Tickets are available for Monday evening only, Tuesday only or for the full conference, and are reduced for an Early Bird rate through Friday, February 16.
