COVID may keep us from gathering in-person, but this year’s LUGPA Annual Meeting won’t just be another Zoom call. In addition to all the great educational sessions, we also have a way for attendees to socialize and have fun. 

Annual Meeting attendees will want to join us Friday night, November 6, when Program Committee Chair Evan R. Goldfischer, MD, MBA will host the meeting Kick Off. His brief remarks will be followed by an industry symposium presented by UroGen. The first evening's events will wrap up with the Exhibit Hall Kick Off and Beer Tasting Social EventAll attendees are welcome to join the social event even if you have not placed a beer order.  

The meeting will resume Saturday morning, Nov. 7, with opening remarks from Dr. Goldfischer and an update from LUGPA President Richard G. Harris, MD, followed by LUGPA’s Political Affairs and Health Policy Update. On Saturday afternoon, LUGPA President-Elect Jonathan Henderson, MD will demonstrate how to measure and track your practice's productivity, financial and quality metrics against benchmark data from other LUGPA groups. This Practice Benchmarking Update will be followed by the 2020 Annual Meeting Keynote presented by Jim Craig, the heart and soul of the 1980 USA Olympic Hockey team. 

After the Keynote, there will be multiple clinical and non-clinical breakout sessions covering topics such as Nonmuscle Invasive Bladder Cancer Therapies, Retirement Strategies, Guidance to Help Manage the Angry Patient, Cyber Security, How to Attract the Young Urologist to Your LUPGA Practice, and an open mic about "What Keeps You Up at Night?"  



Don't miss the 2020 Keynote Speaker, Jim Craig.  Jim Craig is widely known as the heart and soul of the 1980 USA Olympic Hockey team. The “Miracle on Ice” victory for the United States over the vaunted, seemingly unbeatable Soviet Union team is largely regarded as one of the most extraordinary sports victories of all time, and the team’s success is attributed to exceptional teamwork. Jim has parlayed his incredible work ethic and determination into an impressive sales career, spanning over 30 years. He has also translated many of the essential teamwork principles from the Olympics into successful business methods. As president and founder of Gold Medal Strategies, Jim has created business strategies from the core principles that helped the 1980 U.S. Olympic Ice Hockey team to rise to amazing heights. He will share the methods he’s learned as a professional athlete and an entrepreneur to both educate and assist you in order to develop a team-oriented environment.
