IAFP Hosts 2017 AAFP Ten State Conference

February 17-19, 2017 

Only once in a decade does the AAFP Ten State regional meeting come to Illinois. So block off the dates in your calendar now and take advantage of this local opportunity to learn and network with family medicine leaders from across the upper Midwest and east coast.

The IAFP board of directors will hold their spring board meeting at the event, so it’s a great time to engage personally with our state chapter leaders. The other states send their chapter leaders, so you will be networking with the most dynamic family physician leaders from our neighbors, too. The Hard Rock hotel location ensures that they’ll be plenty of opportunities for fun after the learning is done! Don’t miss out on this once in a decade opportunity.
