2022 Districts IV & VII Annual District Meeting

Together in Wellness: Reflect, Recharge, Reengage

Asheville, North Carolina | Sep 30- Oct 2, 2022


Make plans to join friends and colleagues at the Districts IV and VII Annual District Meeting, September 30 to October 2 in Asheville, North Carolina, at the Omni Grove Park Inn. Don't miss the chance to network and connect in-person while learning from leading experts in the field.

This year's theme is "Together in Wellness: Reflect, Recharge, Reengage" and we are excited to do that in the beautiful mountains of Asheville. The Annual District Meeting was designed specifically to give you the opportunity and time to network and learn about all facets of physician wellness from leaders around the country.

Whether you're attending mentorship mingle sessions, testing your knowledge at the Stump the Professors session, hearing about new and exciting information in the Donald F. Richardson Junior Fellow oral presentations, or enjoying the charming city of Asheville, you're sure to enjoy yourself at this year's meeting.

Meeting Attire

The dress code for the meeting is member preference. However, in consideration of our physician wellness theme, you are encouraged to choose comfortable clothing that could facilitate an outdoor walk between sessions as time permits. No ties or sequins allowed.
