First Web-based Academy Meeting

MPA held its first online meeting on June 25, 2020 and it was a great success.  Members were treated to an educational presentation from a sponsor followed by a business meeting.  Members were able to interact and ask questions.  The meeting demonstrated well that should MPA need to have future web-based meetings because of COVID19 issues that it will be possible and beneficial to the members.  For access to the meeting, members were provided an access link and code and signing on offered options including computer, mobile phone and land line options.


2020 Quickie Seminar Cancelled


The decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Quickie Seminar.  It has been anticipated that most or all providers, those organizing and those attending, will be directly involved in the effort to test and treat patients involved with COVID19 for most or all of the year.  We are looking forward to bringing this event back in 2021.
