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 for Champion of Veterans’ Health nominations extended to Feb. 27

The Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation is presenting a new award in 2019 thanks to a generous donation from WPS Health Solutions. The Champion of Veterans’ Health Award will recognize a Wisconsin physician working outside of the scope of their regular clinical duties to serve military veterans.

Beyond honoring physicians who provide care for veterans, the Foundation and WPS Health Solutions also would like to highlight services and programs that improve health outcomes for veterans and raise awareness among physicians in Wisconsin about the needs and resources for their veteran patients. The award comes with a $1000 donation to the 501(c)(3) veteran-related charitable organization of the physician’s choice and will be presented at the Foundation’s annual dinner on April 5, 2019 at Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison.

Physicians may nominate themselves or be nominated by other individuals or organizations. The deadline to submit a nomination is February 27; click here for more information and the nomination form.
