CPF Annual Provider Dinner Program - April 2 - CANCELLED
Dear CPF Colleagues,

As we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 across the United States and locally, the Board of CPF has decided to cancel this year's Annual Meeting. It has been the recommendation of public health officials to avoid large gatherings while work is done to contain the virus. 

Although we regret that the education conference and dinner program that was planned will not be offered to members, we believe this is the best decision to make given the knowledge at this time. The membership that we serve of physicians, nurse practitioners, managers, and staff at medical offices are on the front lines of the outbreak and their health is of the utmost importance. 

Please feel free to reach out to me of any of the CPF staff for any questions. We will also keep you posted on further CPF activities as the current situation becomes more clear. 

Warmest regards
Deepak Mehrotra, MD
CPF Board President
