Are you a skilled speaker who's an industry expert? The DPC Summit Planning Committee is looking for dynamic presentations for the 2021 DPC Summit. The event is hosted by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP), Family Medicine Education Consortium (FMEC), and Direct Primary Care (DPC) Alliance.
While we’d love to see and hear your presentations in person, the 2021 DPC Summit will be held virtually July 16-18, 2021. All speakers will be required to present using the summit’s chosen online virtual platform.
We invite skilled speakers, passionate enthusiasts, and industry experts to submit presentation proposals for consideration. With an annual gathering of more than 300 attendees, we want you to be a part of the conference that helps shape and grow the direct primary care (DPC) movement.
Proposals will be accepted through January 31, 2021.
Proposals will be accepted until the end of the day on Sunday, January 31, 2021. Submit your application electronically.
All proposals must be submitted by January 31, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. PST for consideration. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or requests for further information. Review the information below before beginning your online application.
The planning committee has expressed particular interest in presentations related to the topics listed below. Presentations on other topics will also be considered.
