2021 Quickie Seminar Wrap Up

This year we had to go with a virtual platform for our annual continuing medical educational seminar and the event went off without any problems.  Speakers did a wonderful job with their presentations as well.  The meeting was coordinated with the Ohio Foot and Ankle Medical Foundation.  MPA appreciates all the support from our sponsors.  Visit the 2021 Quickie Seminar page to see and visit our sponsors websites.  We hope to return with an in-person event in 2022!
