Practicing Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Medical Residents are welcome to join us at the New Physicians Welcome Party on October 25th, 6:30-9:30
Our free casual dinner is designed to let you get to know other physicians in your city, both new and established. You will learn more about the variety of benefits and events your ACMS/IMA membership provides.
We will also be honoring our 2019 Physician of the Year, Kim Stutzman, M.D. Dr. Stutzman was instrumental in opening the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho Nampa program, which started with 6 new residents this fall. Dr. Stutzman has taught at FMRI for the past 12 years and is a passionate supporter of training the next generation of rural family doctors.
In classic ACMS style, this is a family friendly event, being held at the Galaxy Event Center, a new conference facility located inside the Wahooz Family Fun Zone in Meridian. We will have a pizza party for kids age 3-12 with competent childcare supervising play. Unfortunately, we will be unable to provide infant care onsite this year.
You must RSVP for the dinner by October 13th, due to an early catering contract deadline. Also, there are limited children’s spots available for this opportunity and they will fill up quickly. Child registrations are limited to physician households only. We will not be able to add registrations after this date.
Because of the premium play opportunity for the kids to access the game and activity area at Wahooz and additional childcare resources necessary, we must charge for children coming. But we’ve negotiated a discount of 40% or more for the activity area passes. Plus, we will make sure there is enough time in the evening for you to go and play with your kids too!
Children's Activity Options
We will have childcare for ages 3-12 on site. Our general childcare policies are posted here for your review. A waiver must be signed for all children under care at the event.
1) Kids ages 6-12 Pizza Party and 3 Hour Unlimited Indoor Activity Pass $15
With your permission, kids ages 6-12 will be turned (somewhat) loose to enjoy unlimited 3 hour access to these indoor activities at Wahooz: Clip n' Climbing Wall, Laser Maze, Laser Tag, Ballocity and indoor rides and games (not unlimited, but includes $5 of game credit). Our own monitoring crew will be in the facility watching to be sure all your kiddos stay inside and are safe. They can float back and forth between the pizza banquet room and the Wahooz general activity area. Children will not be allowed to any outside Wahooz activities without a parent accompanying them. Bowling may be available by group during certain portions of the evening.
2) As a default, children ages 3-5 will be cared for in a banquet room with light table activities, Toy Story IV and another movie yet to be selected. $5 for pizza party but no access to Wahooz Activities
3) Pizza Party, Ballocity and Frog Jumper Option $15
Perhaps you feel uncertain about your child running amok throughout Wahooz, but you don't want them stuck inside the banquet room the entire time. This option allows childcare worker accompanied access to:
4) Ages 3-12 Pizza Party Only $5 If you feel any of your children are too young, shy or overstimulated at Wahooz to be outside the banquet area without you, they can just stay in the dining area and enjoy hanging out, watching Toy Story IV and another movie, and doing some light activities.
