Mark your calendar to attend the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation Annual Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction featuring guest speaker Mona Hanna-Attisha, MD, MPH, FAAP, the pediatrician whose research and persistent advocacy exposed the Flint, Michigan water crisis. “A Watershed Moment: How one physician shaped a national dialogue”—will be April 21, 2017, from 5-9 p.m. at the Wilderness Hotel & Golf Resort, Wisconsin Dells.
Named one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People (2016), Dr. Hanna-Attisha soared into the national spotlight earlier this year. She has been described as a “hero of our time” by Michigan Radio and profiled in such publications as Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, and Business Insider. At the Foundation’s 2017 event, Dr. Hanna-Attisha will detail her experience identifying and exposing the lead contamination in Flint’s water supply, demonstrating how one physician can improve health for her community, her state and across the nation.
The Foundation Annual Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction is not only an opportunity to hear this inspiring speaker, but also to network with physicians from across the state along with business and health care leaders, all with the goal of supporting the Foundation’s work. Participation helps support the education of future medical professionals, youth health programs and health research and education initiatives across the state.
The event will be held on Friday, April 21, 2017 in Wisconsin Dells
