This now our third year and growing, we invite you to Low Carb Breckenridge 2018, located in the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains. We have added a fresh line-up of speakers and interesting topics. #LowCarbBreck #LCB18

The conference is open to all including the general public, health, nutrition and fitness enthusiasts, the scientific community and healthcare professionals. For healthcare professionals CME credit will be filed with the American Academy of Family Physicians.

The meeting kicks off at 5pm on Thursday evening with registration and welcome drinks at the hotel, so plan accordingly. Whether you’re a skier, snowboarder or not, consider staying a few extra days to enjoy the mountain and lovely town of Breckenridge.

The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel will be hosting this event and providing us with a large and spacious conference room, plenty of space for vendors and mingling and yes, even an oxygen bar for those who might need a little help acclimating to the altitude. Coffee, tea and water will be provided plus plenty of vendor food samples. The hotel has two restaurants, 9600 Kitchen and Made Market. There are plenty of other dining options and grocery stores nearby.

We have a group discount for standard hotel rooms at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel and conference center. Multi-room condos are available at the adjacent Beaver Run Resort at their standard rates. There is a wide range of accommodation available around the area including budget friendly options in Frisco (see below), approx. 20 minutes away by car or bus. We have also been able to arrange discount ski lift tickets, rentals and shuttle from Denver International Airport.

An international destination, Breckenridge is a Colorado town at the base of the Rocky Mountains’ Tenmile Range. It’s known for its ski resort, year-round alpine activities and Gold Rush history. The Victorian core of this former mining town is preserved as the Breckenridge National Historic District, running primarily along Main Street, with colorfully painted buildings from the 1880s and 1890s housing shops, galleries and restaurants.

  • Eskimo

    I was wondering if there was an estimate of how many hours of CME may be available.

    • @rajthiara:disqus, 15-20 CME hours including talks and Q&A sessions.

      • Mary Lewis

        Update please when CMEs are secured. 🙂

        • @disqus_gvaHouQIYt:disqus will do. In the process of collecting speaker abstracts and submitting CME application at the moment. The AAFP review committee usually gives us an answer 4-6 wks before the conference. As the educational content provider we work hard to ensure that the curriculum complies with AGGME requirements.

    Unfortunately I can’t make it. Will the talks be made available on YouTube?

    • There will be live stream (see above) and talks posted on YouTube later in year.
