I had the wonderful opportunity to be on a panel with my co-worker from HealCommunity for a major discussion on “Creating Community in a Virtual Setting” for the ICGMV Conference this year. The focus for the second annual conference was harnessing the power of group visits to facilitate health with sessions focused on:
- Field reports from group medical practice
- Innovation in groups
- Reaching special populations using group medical visits
- Research on group medical visits
- Group medical visit logistics
- Building group visit skills
As a National Board Certified Functional Medicine Health Coach, it was a fantastic opportunity to spotlight a group medical visit with health coaches in the session and of course I had a blast showing off my Zoom skills. We had a very well attending panel with other healthcare providers asking us many questions. Go health coaches! If you haven’t met me yet, I love exploring technology! I’ve also become very well versed at Zoom and love teaching medical doctors and patients how to use the platform, so I was jazzed to showcase the creativity.
The conference inspired me quite a bit, that I think some brainstorming with other partners is going to be necessary for 2023. Stay tuned for more!
