Practice Leadership Conference

February 25, 2023 – March 4, 2023

Beaver Creek, Colorado

Theme: Practice Leadership – Our calling as doctors is a calling to provide excellent clinical care for our patients. However, there are additional ways in which we can honor the Lord through our profession. We have the opportunity to direct those under our charge, exemplifying the servant leadership of our Savior. We can interact with our colleagues, seeking opportunities to share with them the reason for the hope that is in us. And the physical care we provide for our patients can create huge opportunities to address their spiritual needs as well.

Each morning, before hitting the slopes, we will start the day with devotions provided by one of our attendees followed by a group discussion of one of the Faith Prescriptions episodes. Then each evening we will tackle a topic related to Practice Leadership, with plenty of time for iron to sharpen iron as we consider how to best apply what has been presented.

Presenters: Dr. William “Griff” Griffin, CMDA’s Vice President for Dental Ministries, and Dr. Greg Gilbaugh, founder of the Kalos Business Group
