January Meeting: A Shot in the Arm for Your Practice


Plan to start the New Year off inspired by attending the Institute of Podiatric Excellence and Development (IPED) Winter Focus Retreat scheduled for January 5-6, 2018. At IPED our mission is to provide members with scientific and improved patient outcome-based information, compliance and reform updates, and practice management tools essential to succeed in the changing world of healthcare. At our meetings we bring all that and more for our members in an intense couple of days that will keep your practice fired up for many months to come. In addition, you’ll have a chance to network with colleagues and talk to those in the trenches with you. You can also enjoy some warm weather and sunshine—the site for the meeting is the beautiful Lago Mar Resort and Club in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. No guilt, however. Look at all you’ll learn:
