    Celebrating more than 20 years of Operation Education, the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation (Foundation) was thrilled to be back in person at both University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and at the Medical College of Wisconsin. UW-Wisconsin Medical Alumni Association and MCW/Marquette Alumni Association partnered to help students meet with specialty physicians to learn more about the career paths they could pursue. 

    Each school had more than 100 students and 25 different specialties represented. Students rotated to the tables featuring their specialties of interest and asked questions such as, “Did you expect to specialize in this?” Physicians answered questions and gave a day in the life overview while inspiring students to pursue their specialty.

    The night ended with each table playing a fun game of Operation. The winners took home gift cards, tee shirts, books and more.

    Jerry Halverson, MD, DFAPA, WisMed Board Chair and Rogers Behavioral Health Chief Medical Officer, told Fox6, "The purpose of 988 is to help you get over that crisis point, and get you someone that can help you more definitively. This is going to open up access to a lot of people who wouldn’t have taken advantage in the past. It can be a game-changer."

    The 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline is a network of more than 200 support centers around the country. Contacts not answered by in-state partners roll over to a national backup system.

    The GO PAC GO fundraising campaign kicked off on Monday with an email from the WISMedPAC board encouraging Wisconsin Medical Society (Society) members to get off the bench and get into the game. 

    The Society’s political action committee, WISMedPAC, amplifies the physician voice by making political contributions to candidates and leadership committees – this allows for better, friendlier access to decision makers in the Capitol. The Society has a long history of advocating in the State Capitol on behalf of our members. Every legislative session, the Society’s lobbying team works to protect the physician-patient relationship.

    You’ve got a week to get into the first quarter of the game. Teams are based on congressional district and your goal is to contribute to help your team win the game! We’ll publish names to honor and thank those who are taking part and helping the Society continue our strong advocacy on behalf of all physicians and their patients. There will be prizes – it’s truly a competition!

    To get in the game, please contribute here or contact Heidi Green, 608.358.6116 and she’ll take your contribution.

    Thank you to everyone who has gotten off the bench for their teams! First quarter wraps up next Wednesday so make sure you get on the scoreboard!
