Welcome Message from the Presidents
northeast regional nurse practitioners conference
We are delighted to welcome our keynote speaker Richard A. Parker, MD to this year’s conference. Dr. Parker is currently the Medical Director at Beth Israel Deaconess Physician Organization and Assistant Professor, Medicine, Harvard Medical School. His presentation will address the Nurse Practitioner’s place in the world of Accountable Care Organizations (ACO’s).
As always, the conference will provide a variety of workshops, clinical sessions and poster presentations led by a diverse faculty who are experts in clinical care and professional issues. The Massachusetts Coalition of Nurse Practitioners and the New Hampshire Nurse Practitioner Association will be holding their respective annual business meetings during lunch on Thursday. This is a great opportunity to hear about the work your organization is doing on behalf of the NP profession. If you do not belong to either organization, we welcome you to join us and learn about the benefits of becoming a member.
As part of the conference, we will once again host an evening reception on Thursday, May 7th at 5:45 PM. We welcome attendees to join us. The event will include recognition of nurse practitioners from Massachusetts and New Hampshire who have demonstrated excellence in professional practice. It will also provide an opportunity for networking and socializing.
By attending the conference, you will become a part of the regional nurse practitioner history and help create a vision for nurse practitioners of the future.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
