His presentation is followed by two panels focusing on strategies to address the opioid/heroin/fentanyl crisis and alternatives to opioids for pain, including medical marijuana and acupuncture.

Sunday morning the 38th running of the Edmund Hardy, M.D. Road Race will begin promptly at 7:00 am (course is about 3 miles and walkers are welcome). The educational program beings at 8:00am with a panel of physician executives leading hospital organizations in Maine.

A special thank you to the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership which is facilitating two of the three CME panels.
Register now on the MMA website at www.mainemed.com. Today, MMA has posted two resolutions to be considered by the membership at the business meeting scheduled for Saturday morning. The resolutions address diabetes care in Maine and the public health crisis of gun violence. Although the Harborside Hotel is sold out, several other facilities within walking distance of the meeting are available and staff at the MMA office can assist members with securing alternate housing (622-3374 and press 0 for assistance).
Note that the various parts of the Annual Session will be taking place at the Poolhouse behind the Bar Harbor Club, not in the Club building itself (except for the Friday MICIS session, which will be in the Club).< Previous Article | Next Article >
