BOSTON, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pri-Med, a leader in continuing medical education, recently completed another successful edition of PrimaryCareNOW: A Pri-Med Virtual Conference, hosted live on Pri-Med.com on October 15−16. Developed in partnership with leading faculty from Baylor College of Medicine, this two-day digital learning experience provided nearly 4,000 primary care clinicians with 13 evidence-based sessions that span the diverse therapeutic areas that touch primary care, including courses on COVID-19, influenza, and medical marijuana.
Pri-Med has hosted at least one PrimaryCareNOW virtual conference in each month since May, generating more than 36,000 clinician registrations. The success of these virtual conferences has helped Pri-Med drive an 80% year-over-year increase in CME/CE credit earners since October 2019.

Domino, MD; Claire Panosian Dunavan, MD; and Richard A. Gibbs, AC, PhD.
"We've been delivering new education on Pri-Med.com each week to provide clinicians on the front lines of care with the most up-to-date clinical guidelines and insights," said Sara Floros, vice president of education operations at Pri-Med. "With more clinicians turning to digital education, we will continue to work with our expert faculty to develop timely, relevant programs, including additional PrimaryCareNOW and CardiologyNOW conferences."
