The Family Medicine Foundation of West Virginia‚Äôs annual Jose I. Ricard, MD Family Medicine & Sports Medicine Conference in Huntington, West Virginia, each November funds a scholarship program for needy medical students in our state as well as other charitable projects. 

The conference has grown to become the largest medical meeting in the state and surrounding region and is now available through live stream.  The conference has become noted for its excellence in CME due to the high quality of speakers and relevant topics. 

The annual November conference is our greatest source of funds for a variety of projects.
