Reference Committee reports online April 2

Reference Committee hearings to discuss resolutions and other items of business that will be considered by the Wisconsin Medical Society’s 2018 House of Delegates (HOD) were held at Society headquarters in Madison on Saturday.

Dozens of Society members provided testimony in person or via GoToWebinar™, after which the Reference Committees convened in closed session to consider testimony and prepare recommendations for the HOD. The reports will be posted here* no later than Monday, April 2. Members will be able to post comments regarding items in the reports.

The HOD will convene at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, April 14 in Madison, but the day gets underway with new delegate orientation at 7:30 a.m., district caucus meetings at 8 a.m. and a CME session from 9 to 11 a.m. (See this March 22 Medigram story for more information.)

On the evening of Friday, April 13, the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation kicks things off with its annual fundraising dinner and silent auction. Guest speaker David Sheff, a journalist and a New York Times best-selling author, will share his story of heartbreak, perseverance and hope as the father of a son addicted to drugs. Through years of research and interviews with numerous physician specialists, Sheff shatters the myths and stigma surrounding addiction and the mental illness that often accompanies it. The evening also will feature the inauguration of incoming Society President Martha (Molli) Rolli, MD, as well as recognition of Foundation award recipients.
