"It's time for pediatricians to assert themselves and work toward retaking control of our health-care system by improving our management of 'managed care,'" notes Dr. Schuman. (Step 5 of his PGP program, for example, is "Choose your battles.")

Dr. Shuman will listen to attendees' experiences in managing and protecting the day-to-day flow of information in their practices, while offering his own ideas and recommendations.

Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Schuman's tutorial and qualify for an official-looking, no-CME-credit-provided, certificate of completion of the PGP program!
