2022 Annual Meeting Plenary Speakers 

The FMEC is pleased to announce the plenary speakers for its 2022 Annual Meeting, to be held September 16-18, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, VA. The meeting theme is “Unleashing our Family Medicine Superpowers,” to recognize the strengths, accomplishments, and potential of family medicine. From medical student to resident to practitioner, family physicians are challenged to learn how to use their superpowers – such as agility, breadth of practice, leadership, innovation, patient-centeredness and empathy – to create healthy communities. The Host Committee and staff have invited a distinguished group of super family physicians to give plenary presentations at this year’s meeting, sending attendees home inspired to fight the next day’s challenge.

Plenary topics and speakers will be:

  • Noetic Medicine: The Impact of Ideas on Health and Healing – Steve Bierman, MD, Friday, September 16, 5:15pm – 7:00pm
