***Speaker Invitation


In our Summit Program we have made space for two opportunities for states to share their GME Work. 


1. Table Topic Discussions: we will be hosting table topic discussions during breakfast on Tuesday morning of the summit (Tuesday January 24th, from 7am-8am MT)


2. States Panel: an opportunity for a selection of panelists to discuss their extensive progress on GME. We will be selecting 4 states for this panel opportunity. 


Additionally, space will be available to distribute printed materials on dedicated tables available at other times during the conference.  


This is an ideal opportunity for people from different states to share with others initiatives they have going on which relate to the larger theme of our conference, "Developing and Sustaining an Accountable Physician Workforce for our States and Communities"
