Overview

Please join us for a Take a Stand conference in Indianapolis. Take A Stand is a national initiative from the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) to assist medical practices with implementation of standing orders protocols for adult vaccines.  

Your morning will feature nationally renowned experts:  William Atkinson, MD, MPH and LJ Tan, MS, PhD.  They will present the national initiative "Take A Stand" which provides guidance to assist medical practices with implementing standing orders for adult vaccines.  The afternoon session will feature best practice strategies and a Q&A session.  CME will be offered for the event (see below).

A box lunch will be provided with time allowed to attend a dolphin show or visit your favorite zoo exhibits on your own!  In addition, a zoo-keeper will provide a "hands-on" presentation with one of their favorite animals during our afternoon break!  You will have time after the meeting to visit more of the zoo since it is open until 7:00 pm.
