Annual Meeting & Future of Healthcare Conference

2020 Future of healthcare conference

Taking into account the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic and with the health and safety of our members and community in mind, we have decided to cancel the Duval County Medical Society Foundation’s 2020 Future of Healthcare Conference planned for October 5-6, 2020 in Jacksonville. We feel the best course of action is to move this year’s Conference to next year, and re-direct our resources to better support our physicians in their hands-on battle against COVID-19. This decision was made with both deep regret and sincere commitment to our mission of improving the overall health of Northeast Florida.

Initial plans for re-convening this Conference in October 2021 have begun. Those who have registered to attend the 2020 Conference will have their registrations automatically transferred to the 2021 event. Questions or refund requests can be sent to Sallie Baumann, Meetings Manager, at


The DCMS Annual Meeting component of the Conference will be conducted virtually on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 at 6:30 pm. This Town Hall-style event will feature keynote speeches from American Medical Association President Susan Bailey, MD, and Florida Medical Association President Michael Patete, MD, as well as presentation of the annual DCMS awards, and the election of our 2021 President and Officers. Members may register for that free on-line event by clicking here.

We thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing you virtually on October 6 and in-person in October 2021!
