It is exciting to watch how the association has grown and changed since 2014. FMMA’s initial goal was simply to teach others how to replicate the success the Founders had experienced by embracing the free market in healthcare. At that time, a Buyer and Seller working together, without interference, was unheard of, and often it was contractually banned by the establishment. As awareness of the true causes of the broken healthcare system has emerged, greater rumblings about perverse incentives, inflated costs, and the monopolistic control by just a few are getting louder.
The theme of the 5th FMMA Annual Conference is Burn the Ships: The Healthcare Free Market New World. This event will be more than informative, more than commiserative; it will provoke you to act and (possibly) instigate an insurrection.
Our speakers will help empower you to eliminate the option of retreat by rejecting the system and liberating yourself from the failing healthcare status quo ship. The Keynote Luncheon guest speaker is the ultimate free market defender: The Honorable Dr. Ron Paul. In his presentation Free Market Medical Care and the State, Dr. Paul will provide the insight of a physician and champion of liberty while providing a glimpse of what his ring-side seat in Washington revealed about the machine bent on delivering medical bankruptcy to all but the elite. His unwavering passion will motivate every attendee to wake up and speak out!
All of this year’s speakers and panelists will be inspiring and motivating. As you review the full list of speakers and contributors in the conference section of this issue, finding a topic or speaker that is relevant and valuable to you will be easy.
As always, the conference will include the Founders’ Panel with Dr. Keith Smith and Jay Kempton presenting “Burning the Ships: Going All In!”
One of my favorite authors, Dr. Marty Makary, is a general session speaker. Dr. Makary is the author of Unaccountable, the book that sparked the TV series “The Resident”.
His presentation is guaranteed to be thought-provoking and engaging. He will also be discussing his newest book The Price We Pay, which will be available for purchase at the conference.
Please join us on April 11-13, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, TX. This unique event is sure to motivate the legitimate stakeholders (victims) to fight for change!
