Upstate MCCF Retreat

On Saturday morning, September 23, 2006, students and community physicians converged on Rochester from as far as Connecticut to attend our Upstate MCCF Retreat – a stimulating day of feasting, fellowship, and education. The day started with our Fall Christian Physicians Breakfast where Dr. Daniel Fountain, MD, MPH, began the first in a series of 5 informative and discussion-provoking sessions on the subject: “What’s wrong with US health care and how can we fix it?”
