Primary Care Psychiatry Conference

Message from the Chair:
    Thank you so much for considering sponsoring the January 26-27, 2018 Essentials of Primary Care Psychiatry Conference, which will be held in Las Vegas and sponsored by California Psychiatric Association.    


    The CME content for this conference is a bit unusual in that it ties in both primary care medicine and psychiatry. The focus is on teaching PCP’s how to most effectively deliver targeted primary care based psychiatry. Most of the presenters are dually trained and practice both primary care medicine and psychiatry. Because of the unique interface between primary care and psychiatry, we believe exhibitors who work with either PCP’s or psychiatrists would benefit from interaction with attendees and speakers at the conference.  
    We are most grateful for your consideration to support this conference. We hope to see you in January and thank you in person. If you have any questions about this conference, please contact Lila at 916-442-5196 or
