National Conference 2024 | Kansas City | August 1–3

Going to Kansas City

Musicians have long sung those words. Once you’re here, you’ll get it.

National Champion teams. James Beard Award restaurants. Renowned arts. A robust music scene. The best barbecue you’ve ever held in your fingertips.

(And home of the only national conference for medical students.)

Is it any wonder Lonely Planet chose KC as one of just two cities to receive its 2024 Best in Travel award?

While you’re here, plan time to check out our city. We’re pretty proud of it.
