Join us at the 2018 UCA Urgent Care Fall Conference, Oct. 12-14 at the luxurious new Marriott Marquis in Houston, Texas.

Awaken your inner adventurer and launch into New Frontiers.  Explore ingenious strategies, gain unique perspectives and receive smart advice to approach the practice of urgent care differently, defy current limitations and endeavor long-term success.

The main conference will begin at 9:15am on Friday, October 12 with the Opening General Session, and will conclude Sunday, October 14th at 5pm.

However, we encourage you to stay an extra day and explore Houston on Monday! As America's fourth-largest city, Houston is a great vibrant city. Take a stroll through their historic heights, explore the museum district, or head down to NASA. 

Stay tuned for updates on how you will be able to "create your own adventure" for the first time ever at this year's UCA Urgent Care Fall Conference (check out the map below for all the cool things you can do within walking distance from the hotel!).  We will not only inspire you to do better, but be better - it's the New Frontier!
