Welcome to the 12th Annual Winter CME Symposium sponsored by Community
Medical Centers and Santé Health Foundation! The program planning committee has
worked hard to develop a program featuring notable experts to address the
challenges and opportunities facing today’s healthcare providers.
Speaker highlights include a former candidate for nomination for the
President of the United States and neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson; a family
medicine trained wellness-specialist and CEO of TheHappyMD.com, Dr. Dike
Drummond; and Fresno-native Dr. Zubin Damania who is an internist by day, but
better known for his clever medical-rapper celebrity persona, ZDoggMD.
The Symposium begins on Wednesday night with a Welcome Reception at the
Fairmont Scottsdale Princess and I look forward to seeing you there.
Friday afternoon after the CME morning sessions, participants will have the
opportunity to compete in a CMC golf tournament at the Fairmont property, on
the turf of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
As the Chair of CMC's CME committee and Director of CME, I want to express
my gratitude for your attendance and support, as we enthusiastically anticipate
this year's event to be outstanding! The great location, relevant speaker line
up, and opportunity to engage with your colleagues in 'The Pursuit of
Excellence,' will result in the high quality CME experience you have come to
Dike Drummond MD is a Mayo trained Family Practice Physician with a unique combination of ground level experience in medicine, coaching and personal and business development.
Dike’s expertise in personal change was developed through a combination of 11 years as a family practice doctor and 10 years as a business coach working with physicians and startup entrepreneurs.
“The burnout epidemic in physicians is a completely predictable result of our medical training and the generally accepted definition of “success” amongst doctors. AND it is both a preventable and treatable condition.”
“TheHappyMD.com is a place where any physician can go to find the tools so YOU can be a Happy MD. We are the only organization in the world with a complete focus on coaching, writing, training and consulting to treat and prevent physician burnout.
We have thousands of hours of coaching experience and thousands of physician members and clients. When we see a tool that works in the real world, we immediately share it through the website, our newsletter and our online content partners. I like to describe our techniques as field tested and doctor approved.”
Zubin did everything his immigrant physician parents expected of him: molecular biology and music at UC Berkeley, medical school at UCSF, residency in internal medicine at Stanford, and finally a nearly decade-long career as a hospital doctor at Stanford University Medical Center. He also routinely took out the trash and cleaned his room.
But then he did something his parents didn’t expect (or much quite like): he quit, left the Bay Area with his wife and two young daughters, and moved to Downtown Las Vegas. All to be a part of an epic experiment: Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Project.
The goal was to transform Downtown Las Vegas in record time from a series of empty lots and quirky bars to the epicenter of a burgeoning tech, arts, food, and business scene. Tony was investing $350 million of his own cash to curate this experiment, and he asked Zubin to do nothing less than rethink entirely how a 2.8 trillion dollar industry — healthcare — might look if it were just done right from scratch.
Luckily, he found that the answer was probably simpler than it has been made out to be. We don’t do primary care right in this country. But through good primary care, you can treat or better yet prevent most costly illnesses. So fix primary care…and you fix medicine.
With Turntable Health, that’s exactly the idea he’s pursuing. To get a better sense of all this, check out his alter-ego, ZDoggMD.
Ben Carson’s remarkable journey from tough, inner-city youth to history-making neurosurgeon celebrates and illustrates the power we all have to excel and influence others.
As the son of a single mother in a tough urban neighborhood, Carson was running with the wrong crowd and failing in school-feeling as though he had no way out. He could easily have spiraled downward, but he chose another path. Driven by a passion for science and helping those less fortunate, Carson pursued medicine and he would ultimately become one of the most respected neurosurgeons in the world. Carson’s riveting presentation inspires audiences to take charge of their lives, no matter what obstacles confront them. Soft-spoken yet charismatic, Carson commands the stage. He captivates people with a compelling presentation that’s humorous, insightful and thought provoking-showing them the keys to turning great challenges into still greater triumphs. Carson had to take his own advice when an aggressive form of cancer struck and his focus turned to survival and recovery. It was just the one chapter in Carson’s amazing life proving the power of the determined mind. Carson's life was chronicled in the original TNT movie, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story starring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. He has written six best-selling books including the New York Times bestseller, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great (2012). In his book, One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future (May, 2014) debuting at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, Carson shares how we can save the American dream for future generations. Carson is also the author of One Vote: Make Your Voice Heard (October, 2014) in which he urges every American citizen to exercise the power of their vote and provides the tools needed to become an informed voter. In June 2013, after 40 years of medical endeavors, Carson retired and today serves as Professor Emeritus of Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University and is a syndicated columnist and former FOX News contributor.
