About the conference
*** COVID-19 ALERT ***

Because of the uncertainties associated with social distancing, the August 2020 Utah PA&NP Conference will be held online using video conferencing technology. This format may be familiar to those who attended the conference last August when, on the last day of the 2019 conference, a landslide in Little Cottonwood Canyon prevented half the attendees and the 7 Friday Speakers from getting to Snowbird. Online video conferencing was used so all could participate on day 3 of the conference.

We will adopt a "one-registration-fee-fits-all" fee structure of $250 ($300 after July 10th). Those who have already registered will have the option of applying the balance above that amount to their registration fee for the conference in 2021. Also we will apply for 20 CME/CE credit hours.

The conference dates will remain the same, August 5-7, 2020. The anticipated agenda is under the "Agenda" link on the Home page. The agenda includes Breaks as well as 4 Non-CME talks provided by some of our faithful vendors. Please plan to be online during the date, day and time to view each talk listed on the agenda.

We appreciate your continued loyalty and will miss seeing you in person for our 44th annual conference during this unprecedented time in our history.

Please contact us with any question or visit www.snowbirdcme.org for more information.

Thank you.

This is the 44th Annual, "must attend" conference for the latest information for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants.

Lectures with discussion comprise the format for the conference and physicians are encouraged to bring questions. On Wednesday, there will be a Social with Poster presentations and a Non-CME Dinner with Speaker in the evening.

Those who participate in this continuing medical education conference will receive hours/credits for their attendance.

This informative "meeting-of-the-minds" will stimulate your thinking through didactic lectures, lively debate, complex case studies and engaging workshops.

Distinguished faculty will present cutting-edge information on the diagnosis, management and treatment of common conditions, diseases, and problems.
