THE BROAD SCOPE OF PRIMARY CARE
Friday, Sept. 18 | noon-1 p.m. | Zoom
Speaker: Sean Reed, MD
Primary care can easily become a buzzword that is thrown around by institutions and the media to describe healthcare shortages and other systemic issues in medicine. But what does it actually consist of? Dr. Reed hopes to shed a little light on the wide range of practice and opportunities that primary care medicine provides not only for patients but for the physicians who care for them.
