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

AG Schimel to participate in Waukesha County Medical Society CME program

Heroin, Opiate Prevention and Education (HOPE) legislation and how it impacts the physician’s practice is the focus of an educational program that will include remarks by Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel and Dave Ross, secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services. The program is being presented by the Waukesha County Medical Society, Wednesday, March 23, at the Marriott Milwaukee West in Waukesha and is open to anyone interested in attending.

Opioid addiction and drug diversion have become an epidemic in Wisconsin, and Rep. John Nygren’s HOPE Agenda aims to address this urgent public health crisis. Under newly enacted laws, physicians can expect to see a number of changes in how they practice medicine, including changes related to narcotics prescribing and reporting.

Approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, the program will feature an interdisciplinary panel of presenters who will provide information on how physicians can be proactive with the new requirements in order to stay ahead of the changes and avoid compromising the quality of patient care provided.

Registration is open to anyone interested in attending. Click here to learn more and register today.
