What Is the M3 Conference? Why Should I Go?


The M3 Conference is a unique and historic gathering bringing together those on the frontlines of health care – practice managers and their physicians and physician assistants — for three days of learning, sharing ideas and insights, networking and socializing. The conference takes place September 15-18 at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC.

Here are just a few reasons to attend:

  • Learn how to leverage data to help your practice thrive.
  • With the general election just weeks away, get an update on key national races affecting health care from nationally known political analyst John McLaughlin.
  • Better understand how to celebrate what’s good in your work, your relationships, your family and yourself. Dr. Wayne Sotile, a national speaker on resilience, will help you understand the important connection between your career and what you carry home after the work day.
  • Learn how to avoid common patient communication pitfalls.
  • Better understand the move to value-based payment from innovative North Carolina health care leaders who have made the move.
  • Find out more about what North Carolina health officials are doing to fight the Zika virus and what your practice needs to be aware of.
