ACOFP '22 Programming

After two years, it’s time to join your ACOFP family in-person for an education and networking experience like no other. Immerse yourself in the latest trends in osteopathic family medicine and hear from leading experts at the ACOFP 59th Annual Convention & Scientific Seminars, taking place March 17–20 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas. In addition to more than 30 hours of AOA Category 1-A CME—available on-site and for attendees to access on-demand after the event—this year’s event will feature more networking time than ever before.

It’s time to come together.

Opening Keynote Session
Presenter: Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour

Combat tests you. Being a beat cop tests you. Life tests you. Three brothers and being the only girl...tests you. 

Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour has been tested her whole life. A gutsy trailblazer, her resume is an impressive collection of “firsts” including America’s first Black woman combat pilot. She served two tours of duty in Iraq as a Marine. She was also a diversity liaison officer to the Pentagon for Headquarters Marine Corps. After her military service, FlyGirl revved up her career in the private sector as an entrepreneur, consultant to business, and author of Zero to Breakthrough: The 7-Step, Battle-Tested Method for Accomplishing Goals that Matter

As a speaker, FlyGirl unleashes hard-hitting advice and amazing anecdotes from her adventures on the battlefield and in business. She helps individuals and organizations "get gutsy" and build a sustainable inner force and conviction—that results in accomplishing significant goals.
