MAG, AMA, MAA, Cobb & DeKalb CMS to host QPP session in Atlanta on December 1

The Medical Association of Georgia is encouraging physicians in the state to register for an educational session that it will co-host with the American Medical Association (AMA), the Medical Association of Atlanta, the Cobb County Medical Society, and the DeKalb Medical Society at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 1 to address the final rule and requirements of Medicare’s new Quality Payment Program (QPP).

AMA says the session is designed to “help physicians prepare and understand what the final rule means for their practice.”

The QPP is tied to the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) that was passed in 2015.

Contact Susan Moore at smoore@mag.org or 678.303.9275 with questions.

It's hard to believe that in 2016, there are still people, including politicians, who question the value of vaccinating children.

If that has you still struggling, consider Dr. Gulshan Harjee, president and CEO of First Medical Care Inc. in Decatur. Even at age 63, she's the human face of the lingering problem, the tangible evidence that what UNICEF does works long after it administers vaccines to children around the world.
