Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Deadline to register for Foundation event is next week

There is just one week left to register for the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation Fundraising Dinner and Silent Auction at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center, April 24. This year’s event features ZDoggMD, also known as Zubin Damania, MD, an extensive silent auction and a chance to win a 50-inch LED Smart television being raffled off that evening. Register by April 3 to hear this dynamic speaker and network with close to 500 physician and business colleagues from across the state.

During his 10-year hospitalist career at Stanford, Dr. Damania received the Russell Lee Award for Clinical Teaching, while also maintaining a shadow career creating YouTube music and TV parodies under the pseudonym ZDoggMD. At this event, he will use his unique style to speak to the serious issue of burnout among physicians and other health care professionals and how it affects patient care.

The Foundation also is excited to have Tina Sauerhammer, MD, as the emcee for the event. Doctor Sauerhammer, a pediatric plastic surgeon with Prevea Health in Green Bay, was crowned Miss Wisconsin and was the second runner-up for Miss America in 2003, the same year she graduated from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health at just 22 years old.
