See You at STFM

Aquifer (formerly MedU) is looking forward to attending the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine’s Medical Student Education Conference on February 1-4 in Austin, Texas!

By now, we hope you’ve heard that MedU’s name has changed to Aquifer, and fmCASES will be known as Aquifer Family Medicine. We’re excited to connect with our Aquifer Family Medicine (fmCASES) subscribers in person and share all the latest news.
