Infuse Conference
May 5-6, 2018
Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Facility

Supporting and caring for physicians is important and should be a priority for everyone involved in health care. The MSV Foundation along with 12 other physician organizations from around the state have come together and risen to the challenge to create a remarkable and experiential event called Infuse, designed to help navigate these waters. Dan Carey, MD  shares why he is going to Infuse in this 1 minute video.

Infuse 2018 is a “must” attend event that provides an intentional moment for physicians to think about themselves, explore their passions, and connect with the joy in practicing medicine.

We are only days away from gathering to Infuse health care possibilities in Richmond, don’t miss your chance to experience 9 innovators in a meeting different from anything else (and did we mention 10.75 CME credit hours?*).
