What Sets an IPA Conference (IPAC) Apart From Almost Every Other Medical Conference?

First off, there are more conferences than time and deciphering what is continuing education vs. brand influence can be challenging, even for compliance and credentialing experts. Secondly, when one walks through an exhibition hall at almost any of today’s medical, healthcare or wellness conferences, or expos, they immediately notice the amount of time and money that is being put into attracting, captivating and retaining their attention. Some of these conference coordinators even take the time to curate their attendee’s experiences so they can further guarantee exposure for certain brands that have paid higher combinations of sponsor and exhibition fees since most of their business models are built on generating revenue, data and interest, and of course monetizing that data and customer base. This has had unintended consequences that have contributed to the systemic breakdowns that continue to plague healthcare, providers and the patients we are devoted to keeping healthy, balanced and well leading to sicker populations and a weaker economy and society as a result.  With few exceptions, the medical conference space has become this giant funnel for customers and revenue, not a place to learn the latest and greatest solutions for our patients.

That is simply not the case with the IPA or IPA’s Conferences. IPA’s Education Committee exclusively serves the Integrative Providers, Practitioners and Professionals in IPA’s Membership Base. Brands, products and consumer-focused companies and retailers are forbidden from obtaining a membership in the IPA, even as a supporting member, and cannot present at IPAC’s.

Remember: It Is Impossible To Serve Two MastersFor An Expo or Conference To Claim That They Are Developed To “Educate Providers” With Revenues Taken From Brands Is A Major Conflict of Interest From The Start, Regardless.

Brands are forbidden from influencing IPA’s Education, Events and Advocacy because as Integrative Providers, our primary obligation and responsibility is to our patients and the integrity of our professions. Any prescribing provider can write a script, but how many can take the time to learn their patients and create a treatment plan that balances mind-body-spirit with optimal wellness, and individualized medicine, because we can.  Join Us, and let’s realign healthcare with our missions, together.

What Makes IPA Conferences (IPAC's) So Impactful?

IPA is Bridging the Gap:  A new pilot program will be run on Day-3. It’s here where IPAC2023GA Prescribing Licensed Provider Graduates (MD, DO, PA-C, APRN…) of IPAC2023GA, will take their newly learned skills and apply them directly on Day-3 to the Teach1:Serve10 Free Clinic Day under the direct supervision and guidance of trained and experienced proctors, and locally licensed prescribing practitioners. It’s that simple. The IPA Teaches (1) Provider and then they apply it directly to serve (10) local underserved community members at the Teach1:Serve10 Free Clinic Day, converting education into measurable impacts for struggling local underserved community members. 

IPAC Attendees will be fully immersed in fun and engaging content while gaining direct knowledge and education on the latest in therapeutic developments, research, science and practical applications in medicine. In addition to earning direct clinical experience through clinical practicum opportunities (for prescribing providers)- attendees will experience spirited and memorable lecturers that captivate and direct their curiosity and attention spans. Come see firsthand what the IPA is all about. It may just change your life as you give back to the community directly, after you learn at the IPAC2023GA. 

Not quite sure who/what the IPA is all about? Then come check it out and experience the Integrative Providers Association Conference (IPAC) first hand. Meet like-minded professionals and providers who are learning how to effectively make a positive difference; even if it’s only ten patients at a time. 

The Teach1:Serve10 Free Clinic Day, is fiscally sponsored by: the Compassion Center, a 501(c)3 medical management services organization dedicated to professional education, advocacy and disruptive healthcare innovations that serve the underserved, since 2001.

Why Should I Book At The Conference Hotel?

The hotel rates that the IPA has negotiated with the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel include many benefits for you and the IPA. Based on the number of rooms in our block of hotel rooms, the hotel will provide complimentary meeting room space, exhibit space, discounted staff rooms, and other negotiated, reduced group spend charges. These savings are passed on to the attendees through the IPA’s inexpensive registration rates. If the IPA is unable to meet its room-block commitment because attendees are making reservations at other hotels, the hotel will charge us an attrition fee on both sleeping rooms and meeting space to make up for their lost revenue. If this were to become a new trend, we would be forced to increase the registration fees and cut conference services.

Is it important for me to let the reservations agent know that I’m associated with the IPA and IPAC2023GA?

Yes, IPA only receives credit only when registrants tell hotel staff that they are attending the IPA or IPAC conference so please use Code: IPA2023 for all online purchases and phone reservations. Please make sure the reservations agent knows you are attending IPAC2023GA – whether you or someone else makes your reservation – or make your reservation through the link above on the IPA website and it will be handled automatically.

What Is The IPA Doing To Reduce Potential Attrition Fees and Still Keep The Conference Affordable?

The IPA will track sleeping room reservations/cancellations at the resort so we can more accurately block a number of rooms for attendees at our future events. Please note: every discount the IPA receives at a hotel/resort is purely based on the number of room nights we block, so once the contract is signed, if we reduce our sleeping room block, we will be paying more for other services at the hotel. Reducing the block means that attendees will either have to pay higher registration fees or that services will have to be cut.

Please, Always Stay At The IPA Conference Hotel!

A Celebration of Life

David Gene Ostrow

Dr. David G. Ostrow, Clinician, Humanitarian Extraordinaire: 04/28/1947 - 02/16/2022

 

On February 20, 2023 at 7pm, the Integrative Providers Association Board of Directors Will Hold a Formal Dinner, Memorial Ceremony and Charity Auction* where a Roster of Who’s-Who will Celebrate and Honor David Gene Ostrow, MD, Ph.D, LFAPA, (04/28/1947 – 02/16/2022) and His Lifetime of Notable Achievements, Accomplishments and Mission(s). 

Dr. Ostrow was an IPA Charter Co-Founder, Early-On Influencer and Disruptive Innovator that Helped Shape the Integrative Providers Association (IPA). Dr. Ostrow Served as Director of Research on Compassion Center’s Board of Directors, and the Center for Incubation & Findings Research, Community-Based Clinical Cannabis Evalution & Research Network (CBCCERN) Working Passionately on The Cause All The Way Up Until His Untimely Death. 

Born in Brooklyn, NYC, the Great Late Dr. David Ostrow left an enduring legacy that very few could even compare, imagine or make-up as he led initiatives that literally helped entirely reshape landscapes in education, clinical research and practical application regarding sexual health and navigating the early stages of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, as well as fundamental improvements in delivering conventional mental health and integrating various plant-based medicines and ancient modalities. Dr. Ostrow was a champion on Policy, IPA, Mental Health and Medical Cannabis Research, letting his most vocal passions be known to the world at all times. Dr. Ostrow was a super kind and passionate individual, yet larger than life at the very same time with a personality that needed no introduction.
