Caryl Heaton’s Plenary

So today was the last day of the STFM Predoctoral conference.  Caryl Heaton gave a wicked good Plenary.  I'll admit I don't often like plenary speeches because .. while they often aim to inspire .. they often don't.  Caryl's did – and it was even kinda fun.  She spoke about Family Medicine 2.0.  It's about Zen and Broadway and technology and how they are are models & tools for how family physicians do what we do.  We are inspired and we are thoughtful and we are hopeful and we are frustrated and challenged.   Caryl reminded us about why we are good at what we do – and why we need to embrace the tools and new technology to retain what's so strong about what we do and do it better.
