Based in Honolulu, Hawaii, Dr. Ronald H. Kienitz, DO has provided treatment for more than 40,000 workplace injuries since assuming the role of medical director of Concentra Medical Centers. Complementing his professional work, Dr. Ronald H. Kienitz, DO serves as a fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM).

Every year, the ACPM hosts a meeting to support the education of professionals from across the preventive medicine sector. The organization continued this trend with its 2016 The Power of Prevention! conference, which took place February 24-27 in Washington, DC. More than 800 medical professionals gathered for the meeting, making it the most popular in ACPM history.

Among numerous seminars and panels, attendees had the chance to participate in targeted programming on topics ranging from CDC guidelines for prescription opioids to the financial aspect of worldwide health prevention measures. One of the special sessions at the Preventive Medicine 2016 Meeting was the new Health Systems Transformation Institute, which featured an entire day of educational exercises on emerging news in health IT and health-care efficiency.

All guests of the ACPM conference had the opportunity to earn up to 37.25 continuing medical education credits for their participation in each of these events. The ACPM’s 2017 annual meeting will take place on May 23-26 in Portland, Oregon.
