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 former Florida governor, Jeb Bush; 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
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.
A successful governor and business, economic, education and
health care reformer, Jeb Bush elevates the conversation on how to address the
key challenges facing America today.
Jeb Bush is a unifying leader who brings civility to the
discussion of bi-partisan viewpoints while addressing the key issues facing
each audience he meets. Whether leading transformation efforts on issues of
importance like education, healthcare and immigration, or managing crisis
response to the eight hurricanes that hit Florida during his time in office,
Bush understands how organizations can literally be blown apart by the winds of
change. Bush is one of America’s most experienced reformers who led change by
inspiring citizens, businesspeople and policy makers. Before running for the
Republican presidential nomination in June of 2015, he served as the head of a
consulting company whose clients ranged from technology start-ups to Fortune
500 companies. He offers comprehensive strategies to overcome difficulties by
remaining focused on what matters most. An articulate student of policy, Bush
dissects the current political climate by offering fresh insights on the
hot-button issues in the news. Bush demonstrates his unwavering commitment to
forging a better future for America as chairman of the Foundation for
Excellence in Education, which focuses on transforming and providing an
education system that maximizes every student’s potential for learning and
prepares all students for success in the 21st century. He also showed his
commitment by serving as chairman of the National Constitution Center,
America’s first and only nonpartisan, nonprofit institution devoted to the U.S.
Constitution, its ideals and its legacy of active citizenship. He is the
co-author of Immigration Wars: Forging an American Solution (March 2013) and
the author of Reply All (October 2015).
