One can learn from many sources

HOT SPOTS HAWAII is a unique continuing medical education program that blends clinical and therapeutic updates while allowing time for reflection and introspection. The program will be held at the Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu's North Shore. Doug Johnson has negotiated a favorable rate. Hot Spots is designed to allow attendees to consider aspects of our personal and professional lives not typically included in traditional continuing education. Leave your cell phones, pagers and problems behind and use your time at Turtle Bay to think about your own needs without the pressing demands of caring for others. We hope you can join us and promise you will have a rewarding and memorable experience. Doug Johnson has organized memorable social functions for you and your guests.
