Physician Session at 2018 Codequest Coding Conference, Feb. 3

As announced, the 2018 NCSEPS Codequest Coding Course is scheduled for Saturday, February 3, at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro. We're looking forward to another excellent meeting and hope to see you there. Course details and registration are available on the NCSEPS website, www.nceyemd.org.

At the meeting, as in the past, we will have a special lunch session for the ophthalmologists in attendance. The session will allow for an important update on critical activities of the North Carolina Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons, especially the ongoing patient safety efforts in the NC legislature. Both members and non-member ophthalmologists are encouraged to attend, even if you are not planning to attend the Codequest Course.

If you plan to attend this important session, please respond by email (ncoph@ncmedsoc.org) so we can plan accordingly. We need an accurate indication of attendance since lunch will be provided.
