Reminder: Nominations for Physician Citizen of the Year due Dec. 31

There is still time to nominate a friend, colleague or personal physician for the Wisconsin Medical Society’s 2015 Physician Citizen of the Year Award. The deadline is Dec. 31, 2014. Details and a nomination form are available on the Society’s website.

The Society’s Physician Citizen of the Year Award honors Wisconsin physicians who volunteer their time and talents through civic and cultural activities—helping to improve the health and well-being of their communities. The 2015 winner will be recognized during the Society’s Annual Meeting April 25-26, 2015, in Madison.

Green Bay pediatrician Gordon Haugan, MD, received the 2014 award for his efforts to educate children and their families in northeast Wisconsin on the prevention and elimination of childhood injuries that lead to disability or death. Doctor Haugen and the center he founded, the Center for Childhood Safety, Inc., was recognized during the Society’s Annual Meeting in April. Doctor Haugen also was featured in the June issue of WMJ.
