This four-day continuing medical education (CME/CE) conference will feature more than 60 sessions and workshops designed for primary care clinicians from throughout the northeastern U.S., including several sessions that are designed to satisfy CME/CE requirements of Massachusetts state medical and nursing licensing boards on the topic of controlled substances, opioid prescribing, pain management, and/or abuse disorder.

He also served as Chief Executive Officer of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, transforming the company into the nation's highest ranked healthcare provider for member satisfaction and clinical effectiveness for six straight years.
