Our keynote speakers, Doctors Vance and Vince Moss, are brothers, soldiers and surgeons. They offer a unique perspective on life shaped by their persistence to do good and care for others. Both are Army Reserve Medical Corps members that have been deployed numerous times to the Middle East, and as civilian physicians they have gone on strictly humanitarian missions to treat those who needed help, regardless of who they were and what they could offer in return. These incredible men have been named the World News Tonight “Persons of the Year” in 2008, have been recognized by George W. and Laura Bush, interviewed by Oprah and the show “The Doctors”, and the list goes on. Importantly, they are also on teams with physician assistants who they respect and advocate for regularly. We are honored to have the Moss brothers as our keynote speakers at the 2023 NJSSPA CME Conference.
