The Family Medicine Education Consortium annual meeting was held in Cleveland, Ohio, on November 10 & 12, 2017. The theme of this year’s FMEC meeting was, “Harmonize the Voices for Better Health for All.” This year the FMEC community celebrated their 35th anniversary. Today is a time when medicine is fraught with challenges from inside as well as outside of the medical profession. FMEC is an incubator, where they create multi institutional teams that support cost-effective, quality improvement initiatives.
As this meeting is full of 500+ physicians, residents, fellows, and 300+ medical students – it was a great opportunity to share what the Global CMTC-OVM US organization offers for our members. As exhibitors at this event, Ellayna and Bec were excited to educate these medical professionals on our world of rare diseases.
We talked for 2 days about CMTC and other vascular malformations. Of course the normal phrase was, “I have never heard of these diagnoses.” And of course, we grabbed the opportunity to share and build awareness!
