Our Keynote Speaker

Don’t miss our keynote speaker Michelle Segar, PhD, MPH as she presents From Health Care to Self-Care™: New Science-based Strategies for Cultivating Sustainable Behavior Change, Health, and Well-being among Our Patients and Ourselves. Have you ever wondered why it is that people who desperately want to take better care of themselves and adopt healthier lifestyles don’t stick with them once their initial burst of motivation fades? This provocative presentation will showcase the science for a new paradigm that better fosters sustainable behavior change and self-care. Dr. Michelle Segar will explain why our traditional reasons for behavior change (e.g., better heath, disease prevention, etc.) keep people stuck in cycles of starting and stopping but not behavioral sustainability. Through story, she will describe the science behind a novel approach to promoting self-care, health and wellness behaviors that is successful across contexts (health care, fitness, wellness, coaching/patient counseling, organizational, etc.). Attendees will leave this session with a more strategic way to communicate about and promote the sustainable behavior necessary for achieving improved health and well-being among their patients and themselves.

From Health Care to Self-Care™: New Science-based Strategies for Cultivating Sustainable Behavior Change, Health, and Well-being among Our Patients and Ourselves
Michelle Segar, PhD, MPH
Have you ever wondered why it is that people who desperately want to take better care of themselves and adopt healthier lifestyles don’t stick with them once their initial burst of motivation fades? This provocative presentation will showcase the science for a new paradigm that better fosters sustainable behavior change and self-care. Dr. Michelle Segar will explain why our traditional reasons for behavior change (e.g., better heath, disease prevention, etc.) keep people stuck in cycles of starting and stopping but not behavioral sustainability. Through story, she will describe the science behind a novel approach to promoting self-care, health and wellness behaviors that is successful across contexts (health care, fitness, wellness, coaching/patient counseling, organizational, etc.). Attendees will leave this session with a more strategic way to communicate about and promote the sustainable behavior necessary for achieving improved health and well-being among their patients and themselves. 

This session uses story to explain the science behind creating sustainable behavior change related to self-care behaviors (e.g., physical activity, enough sleep). The desired outcome is that participants better understand the specific reasons they (and their patients) are challenged to sustain self-care behaviors and new, easy science-based strategies for becoming more consistent.

Rational Exercise Prescription
Alex Mroszczyk-McDonald, MD
Exercise may be the single best prescription physicians can give their patients as well as themselves. This session will give a brief overview of the myriad of benefits to exercise. It also will explore barriers to exercise, ways for patients and providers to overcome them, and how to write an exercise prescription.

AAFP Update
Michael L. Munger, MD, FAAFP
Dr. Munger brings greetings from the AAFP and will highlight the work being done on your behalf in Kansas City and Washington, DC. From Medicare and Medicaid discussions to teaching health center support, the AAFP has been on the front lines, providng expertise in matters most important to family physicians.

Residents' Poster Session
The CAFP Foundation-supported Resident Poster Session provides an opportunity for family medicine residents in California to present scholarly work on a state platform. Posters are evaluated through a double-blind review process. After two rounds of review, the top 20 are selected for display in the exhibit hall, and the top 10 present their posters on the main stage. The two best presenters are selected to receive a $100 gift card.

Crucial Conversations
Walt Mills, MD
Melissa Nothnagle, MD
A crucial conversation is a discussion between two or more people where the stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong... Sound familiar? Common in everyday life of family physicians, these conversations, when handled poorly or ignored, lead to strained relationships and dismal results, often impacting patient care and physician well-being. In this session, you will be introduced to a framework – Crucial Conversations – that allows participants to speak persuasively not abrasively, foster teamwork and better decision-making, build acceptance rather than resistance, and resolve individual and group disagreements. Learners will practice some crucial conversation concepts and receive tools and resources to continue practicing and learning more about the principles of crucial conversations.

Hot Topics in Infectious Disease
George Kent, MD
This session will provide you with the latest information regarding the gut microbiome and its impact on health and disease. In addition, we will cover vaccines, antibiotics, and guidelines for treating common infections (including STIs).

Exhibit Program Ends

Optional CME Sessions
Practice Inquiry Workshop
Kimberly Duir, MD
Catherine Sonquist Forest, MD, MPH
This session will introduce Practice Inquiry (PI), a small group learning model focused on case-based clinical uncertainty. Considerable literature substantiates how clinical uncertainty, inherent in primary care practice, is only partially reduced by practice guidelines and that time-strapped PCPs usually tackle patient complexity alone. These conditions incubate both clinician dissatisfaction and medical error. Additional fee applies.
 
“Meet Ups”
Connect in the main meeting room with like-minded peers interested in discussing important issues like women in practice, integrative medicine, alternative practice models, new parenting, retirement, and more.

Partnering with Gender-Diverse Youth and Their Families
Scott Nass, MD
Participants will learn about development of gender identity in childhood, best practices for partnering with youth and their families, and specific interventions available to support transgender and gender-diverse youth.

Clearing the Smokescreen: An Update on Cannabis
Tauheed Zaman, MD
A concise update on cannabis, its medical and non-medical formulations, risks, and treatment of cannabis use disorder. The contents are meant to enable family medicine physicians to have more informed and effective conversations with their patients regarding these issues. It is inherent for primary care providers to appreciate the risks and benefits of cannabis use. This session will provide an update of medicinal cannabis use, describe the system of cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids in the body, and outline results from clinical trials investigating cannabis and its main components. Although delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the main psychoactive component, the medicinal potential of the other cannabinoids – especially cannabidiol (CBD) - will be discussed.

Leading with Your Heart
Katrina Miller Parrish, MD
In this session, learners will be inspired and reminded of their value and the importance of listening to your heart, gut, and mind. Learners will focus on maintaining a balance of life, an excellent practice, and relationships with peers and patients. Only through clearing the negative and focusing on the positive can we continue to move forward and be successful. The practice starts with us individually, but is synergistically stronger when we work together to help each other be stronger, smarter, and happier.

Closing Remarks - Conference Ends
Carol Havens, MD
Chris Flores, MD

Optional Post-Conference Workshops
The ASAM Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder Course (blended learning - 4 hours live + 4 hours online)
The Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) specifies that training is necessary for physicians to obtain a waiver to engage in office‐based treatment of opioid use disorders using drugs approved by the FDA on Schedules III, IV, and V. This course addresses those requirements using a curriculum approved by CSAT/SAMHSA and ASAM.
This workshop has recently been updated to include an evidence-based curriculum designed by national experts. Course participants are exposed to the highest quality evidence-based practices when using buprenorphine to treat opioid use disorders. The case-based learning formats show learners how to apply this new knowledge. Additional fee applies.

Women's Health KSA
Rebecca Bertin, MD
Tenessa MacKenzie, MD
This interactive Knowledge Self-Assessment (KSA) Workgroup on Women's Health will take learners through the 60 KSA questions with discussion of correct answers and references. At the end of the session, all attendees' answers will be submitted to ABFM for partial completion of MOC Part II and 8 AAFP prescribed credits. Additional fee applies.
