This weekend’s Annual Meeting to feature CME, town hall and awards

The 2018 Wisconsin Medical Society Annual Meeting gets underway at 7 a.m. Saturday and Society members are encouraged to get involved. In addition to the business of the House of Delegates, Saturday’s agenda includes the presentation of Society awards, a new “Town Hall” and a two-hour CME program, “Increasing Compassion Resilience: A Key to Stigma Reduction,” being held from 9 to 11 a.m.

During the program, which is approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™, speaker Sue McKenzie will give insights into the experience of stigma, what works to reduce stigmatizing tendencies and how physicians can lead efforts to minimize compassion fatigue within themselves and their teams.
