TMA TexMed 2017

Our TexMed Conference 2017 will be hosting a Quality Improvement poster session May 5-6, 2017 in Houston, Texas at the Brown Convention Center. The QI session is open to a variety of QI abstracts. TMA staff (and committees/councils) would like to see some abstract submissions on HPV QI projects. Abstract submissions with an emphasis on HPV communication improvement would be greatly appreciated; that is, improving physician vaccine recommendations and communication to their patients in the clinical setting.
