The
                                     City
                                     Charlotte is the largest city in North
                                     Carolina, the 20th largest in the United
                                     States, and one of the fastest growing
                                     metropolitan regions in the country.
                                     Founded in the 18th century between
                                     two Native American trading paths,
                                     Charlotte was the site of the first gold
                                     rush. When a 17-pound gold nugget
                                     was discovered in 1799, scores of
                                     immigrants migrated to Charlotte in
                                     search of wealth.
                                     Today, Charlotte is the second
                                     largest banking headquarters in
                                     the United States after New York.
                                     The city has a breathtaking skyline
                                     and offers something for everyone,

Start Your Engines for NPA’s Evening at the
NASCAR Museum and Hall of Fame
No trip to Charlotte is complete without paying homage to one of the largest sporting industries featuring
over 1,200 annual races nationwide and abroad.
NASCAR was not born overnight. Following World War II, stock car racing gained increasingly more
popularity. Tracks around the country began to attract new drivers and larger crowds. In 1947 Bill France, a
race promoter from Daytona Beach, organized a meeting to discuss the relevant issues of stock car racing.
The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) was created in 1948, and the rest is history
The NPA group outing will take place on Saturday, June 4, from 5:30-9 p.m. immediately following a site
tour of PACE of the Southern Piedmont. As you enter the facility, you will be surrounded by a futuristic
chrome roof and round glass hall where the NASCAR story is played out on a massive multimedia screen.
Scores of historic vehicles line the hallways. The NASCAR museum features countless interactive exhibits
and NASCAR milestones, the evolution of car safety, historical artifacts, video footage and much more, all in
a high-tech and entertaining setting. The Hall of Fame was designed to honor NASCAR legends.
The evening will feature a full buffet dinner featuring traditional North Carolina barbeque with all the fixings
and time to network with PACE colleagues from around the country.
Enjoy a guided tour of the beautiful 150,000-square foot facility that opened in 2009 as well as a visit to the
Hall of Honor, where hundreds of legendary drivers, mechanics and owners are enshrined.
Don’t miss out on some high-octane action when you take on colleagues in the Pit Crew Challenge, where
your goal is to change a tire and refuel a vehicle in 10 seconds flat. Then go full throttle and step into a
a NASCAR simulator to experience driving around a track at adrenaline-pumping speeds.
The museum gift shop will be open so you can purchase memorable souvenirs.
Don’t miss out on a memorable evening in Charlotte!

Medical Director Essentials (MDE) Course
FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 2016

About the Course
The PACE medical director position is unlike any other leadership role in health care. While good leadership
skills are portable, new PACE medical directors face a formidable learning curve.
Topics will include the history of PACE, the PACE Medical Network, PACE Leadership, hiring and supervising
staff, quality management, utilization management, Part D and data.
This one-day course is geared toward all PACE medical directors. The 7.5-hour CME course will assist
PACE medical directors in fulfilling their clinical, administrative and regulatory roles. The course features
information from the PACE Medical Director’s Handbook, with a discussion of key components such as
medical leadership, primary care staffing, quality, data systems and Part D issues. The course also is
approved for an additional 7.5 hours of management education toward certification or recertification as a
Certified Medical Director (CMD) in Long-Term Care (AMDA).

Purpose
The Medical Director Essentials Course will provide newer PACE medical directors, associate medical
directors and potential medical directors with a core knowledge set. It will provide established medical
directors an opportunity to review and discuss with colleagues fundamental services that can directly benefit
their PACE organization. Panel discussions will follow a series of themes that address different aspects of
medical direction within a PACE organization. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn from each other
and discuss challenging problems they face daily in their role as the medical director of a PACE program.

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to do the following:

Clinical Symposium
New Joint Nursing Program
SATURDAY, JUNE 4 – SUNDAY, JUNE 5, 2016

About the Clinical Symposium
The symposium is geared exclusively for Primary Care Practitioners and other clinicians. This year, the
symposium will offer joint programming with PACE nurses to address relevant nursing topics, elevate the
nursing profession, and continue to strengthen provider/nursing collaboration. This is a new and exciting
option for NPA engagement. Case studies are used to describe the clinical management of typical PACE
participants and the development and implementation of care plans that reflect the preferences of the PACE
participant. In addition to covering the staples of PACE, this year’s symposium theme is “End of Life in
PACE.” Basic and advanced breakout sessions are included. On Saturday morning, there will be a Medical
Director Breakfast (Morning Rounds), which will feature challenging medical director cases. On Sunday
morning, there will be a Clinical Breakfast (Morning Rounds) that also includes several case discussions.

The symposium will feature a luncheon address on Quality and a site tour of PACE of the Southern Piedmont
in Charlotte, followed by an evening social event at the NASCAR Museum and Hall of Fame.

• Managing Care at the End of Life                         • Managing Pharmacologic Expenses in PACE
