Doctor Day 2018 is now only a little over a week away, but registration is still open for the event being held Tuesday, Jan. 30 in Madison. More than 400 physicians and medical students have registered, and organizers hope to surpass last year’s attendance, which was close to 450.
Participants in Doctor Day 2018 will be able to meet with their legislators and/or staff members to have input on important health care issues, including a Worker’s Compensation fee schedule, a bill allowing chiropractors to perform comprehensive sports physicals for high school and college athletes, and legislation removing the requirement for certain nurses to work in collaboration with a physician. They also will take part in an issue briefing including an update on Mayo v. Wisconsin Injured Patients and Families Compensation Fund. Gov. Scott Walker has been invited as the keynote speaker.
There is no fee to participate, and lunch will be provided. The day will conclude with a reception at DLUX in downtown Madison. Click here for a tentative schedule and to register.
