Nominations for the Wisconsin Medical Society’s Physician Citizen of the Year Award are due Wednesday, December 14, 2011. The Physician Citizen of the Year Award recognizes and encourages Wisconsin physicians who volunteer their time and talents through civic and cultural activities, helping to improve the health and well-being of their communities.

Consider nominating a friend, colleague or your personal physician for this award. Details and a nomination form are available on the Society’s website.

In 2011, the Society honored six physicians with this award: Donn Dexter, MD; Douglas Dulli, MD, MS; Jon Englund, MD; Paul Loomis, MD; Catherine (Cate) Ranheim, MD; and Erik Ranheim, MD, PhD. The award recipients were recognized during the Society’s Annual Meeting in April and were highlighted in a WMJ supplement with highlights from the 2011 Annual Meeting.
