The answer is YOU ARE NOT EATING IT (with your fellow DPC friends at the Maine DPC Alliance Mastermind!) It’s not too late to register, however. Maine is incredibly beautiful in the late summer/early fall. I should know, I lived there for 18 years.

Acadia National Park is not that far to go and explore from this DPC event.

The DPC Mastermind Alliance Weekend in Hampden, Maine will take place on September 10-11.


This event is limited to 20 participants so reserve your spot now. Hampden, Maine is located just 10 minutes off of I-95 if you are driving and the Bangor International Airport is located just 10 minutes away if you are flying. Fall is a beautiful time to be in Maine! Extend your stay and visit Acadia National Park, only a short one hour drive away.

You may sign up here. 

Remember, the DPC Alliance Mastermind Weekends IS the original Mastermind. You also get multiple docs (not just one point of view) teaching you the keys to a successful DPC practice. These events are officially sponsored by and run by the DPC Alliance. After covering expenses for the weekend, all proceeds go to the DPC Alliance to help in its mission to promote Direct Primary Care.

The Direct Primary Care (DPC) Alliance is a grassroots, non-profit organization providing vision, leadership, and guidance about Direct Primary Care through physician-led education, mentorship, advocacy, and organizational intelligence.
