Exhibit at OAFP Conferences
The OAFP welcomes exhibitors and education and hospitality grants for our annual conferences. Please contact the Katie Siegrist or call 614.914.5631 to discuss the following opportunities.
Family Medicine Workshop
The Family Medicine Workshop will examine a broad spectrum of topics and concerns of clinical interest and relevance to primary care physicians. The objective is to provide information on diagnostic techniques, advanced technical theory, current research, problem solving methods, and management techniques within the core content areas of family medicine. The program is scheduled over two weekends with each two-day weekend course covering major topic areas for up to 20 continuing medical education credits. Between the two weekends, more than 120 family physicians will attend this unique educational experience.
The 2019 Family Medicine Workshop date, location, and topics are to be determined.
2019 topics include:
- Care of the Vulnerable Elderly Knowledge Self-Assessment and Clinical Self-Assessment
- General Surgery
- Hosptial Medicine
- Orthopedic Surgery
The OAFP seeks corporate partners to provide sponsorships that will help create valuable education for Ohio’s family physicians including the eight clinical topics that are presented between the two weekends. A sponsorship enhances the quality of the program by offsetting honoraria, travel expenses, and other expenses related to obtaining a highly-respected faculty and delivering quality education. The OAFP works with the sponsor to create a sponsorship package that best fits both organizations’ needs. In recognition of each partner’s support, the OAFP will credit that company as an official supporter on signage displayed at the meeting; in a post-meeting issue of our quarterly magazine, The Ohio Family Physician (print and digital circulation is more than 4,900), and in a post-event edition of the Weekly Family Medicine Update, our weekly e-newsletter (circulation more than 4,200).
Exhibiting at the Family Medicine Workshop is a great way to get exposure for your company with Ohio’s family physicians. Tabletop exhibits are held on the Saturday of each weekend’s workshop. The cost of exhibit space is $750 per Saturday or $1,200 to attend both Saturdays. Exhibitors will receive a 3’ by 6’ draped table, chair, final attendee list, and one complimentary meal ticket to Saturday’s dinner with the physicians. Exhibiting companies will be recognized on signage displayed at the meeting, in a post-meeting edition of the Weekly Family Medicine Update, our weekly e-newsletter (circulation more than 4,200) and in a post-event issue of our quarterly magazine, The Ohio Family Physician (print and digital circulation is more than 4,900).
Family Medicine Celebration (Annual Meeting)
Each August, members of the OAFP come together to determine the policies and priorities of the OAFP during the Family Medicine Celebration. In addition to the business and committee meetings held throughout the weekend, the Annual Meeting also offers innovative continuing medical education sessions, an advocacy luncheon, and an American Board of Family Medicine knowledge self-assessment activity.
The 2018 Family Medicine Celebration will be held Saturday-Sunday, August 18-19, at The Grand Event Center in Columbus, OH.
