MOA 2022 Midwinter Symposium: Now A Fully Virtual Event! (As of Jan 7th, 2022)

 February 12-13th, 2022

20.75 CMEs, Research Forum, Wellness Sessions, Virtual Silent Auction

Update on Symposium Format as of January 7th, 2022:

The MOA Professional Education Committee has opted to pivot to a fully virtual event format as of January 7th, 2022. Given the current COVID-19 surge and Omicron variant, we believe that moving forward virtually is the best option for the safety of all involved. We anticipate keeping the schedule of CME Sessions as planned. All sessions will be available live via our virtual platform according to the conference schedule and then will be available for 30 days following the event for on demand viewing for CME credit.

Symposium programming will continue to center around a theme of "Finding Balance" and include our typical 20+ continuing medical education credits for the primary care physician and beyond. We will also feature wellness sessions on healthy snack prep, aligning with the season, movement and more! We hope you will join us virtually from wherever you are!

Our virtual format means you have flexible viewing options! Join us LIVE or access symposium content for full CME credit for 30 days post-event (until March 15th, 2022). View our FAQs for details on tech requirements and more (most systems/browsers are fully compatible with our virtual event platform and there is even a mobile app for easy access!)

Our Comedy Show featuring New England Comedian Jimmy Dunn, planned for Saturday evening February 12th will be postponed until our Annual Convention later this year (June 11-13th, 2022 at The Samoset Resort in Rockport, ME -- SAVE THE DATE!)

The Research Forum showcasing student and resident research will continue in a virtual format with pre-recorded presentation videos.

HOTEL LODGING NOTE: If you had made a reservation at the Holiday Inn by the Bay, it will be automatically canceled by hotel staff and your payment method will be refunded. This process may take some time (check with MOA or hotel staff if you would like an update), but there is nothing needed on your part.
