Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

DBC Pri-Med, LLC, the leading provider of professional medical education to a community of 260,000 health care professionals, announced that Story Musgrave, MD, Former NASA Astronaut and Scientist, will present “Mission Control: Professionalism to Medicine” at Pri-Med East Conference & Exhibition to be held September 19–22, 2013 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Professional education opportunities include over 50 accredited CME presentations developed and presented by faculty at Harvard Medical School.

Through stories and photos, Dr. Musgrave will present new insights on leadership in primary care that are relevant to frontline patient care. Lessons and principles honed through a career marked as an astronaut, marine, surgeon, scientist and literary critic will be shared in order to help clinicians excel in putting together clinical care teams equipped to passionately and compassionately provide individual patient and team care. Through a highly visual keynote, clinicians will reflect about themselves as professionals on a mission, a journey, and a quest.

“Clinicians should consider every patient as an urgent mission with a critical outcome,” said Dr. Musgrave. “I believe the life lessons I’ve learned during my 30-year career as an astronaut can have important applications in the delivery of team-based medicine and I look forward to sharing my ideas. It is a great honor to have the opportunity to address such a large group of practicing primary care clinicians on the front lines of care all at once. ”

Dr. Musgrave’s presentation will be held on Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 7:45am.
