Stop the COVID Spread! Coalition
MSMC is proud to be part of the “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition, a group of Wisconsin’s leading health care, business, education, and advocacy organizations who have all joined in the team effort to urge the public to step up and take preventative measures seriously. The coalition has grown dramatically since its launch and now includes over 125 Wisconsin organizations. 

“The statewide coalition effort to combat the spread of COVID-19 has doubled down on the urgency of its messaging as Wisconsin’s public health crisis threatens to overwhelm the state. The “Stop the COVID Spread!” coalition ramped up its message again in the statewide effort to combat the pandemic. The coalition released its fourth public education announcement, with a stern and serious new message in the coalition’s efforts urging Wisconsin residents to do their part to help reverse the public health crisis.

We hope you'll join us in sharing this crucial message with your friends and family. Our frontline workers are doing all they can, but fighting this pandemic puts them and their families at risk too. We need your help to turn this crisis around - for your family, and for theirs. Read more on the MSMC website.
COVID-19 Risk Chart to Share with Your Patients
The current rise in COVID-19 cases has shown that a significant portion of the general public remains unsure about activities that put them more at risk for catching the underlying virus despite widespread information about COVID-19. To help inform your patients, the Wisconsin Medical Society’s (Society) COVID-19 Task Force has created this downloadable display that you can use when talking with your patients, have on display in your examining rooms, lobby or other areas where patients may see it or give to your patients at discharge.

Wisconsin Doctor Day 2021
Wisconsin’s Doctor Day brings together physicians from every specialty and practice environment to meet with their legislators and advocate on health care issues affecting healthcare. The multi-specialty nature of Doctor Day makes it among the most unique advocacy events for physicians in the country.

Physicians and medical students at all stages of their careers will join together in Madison to take part in policy breakout sessions, hear keynote presentations and participate in a briefing on the day's priority issues. Attendees will then participate in group visits with legislators and legislative staff at the Wisconsin State Capitol. The day will conclude with a Doctor Day reception where you’ll have the chance to connect socially with your friends and peers. 
Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or brand new to the legislative process, attending Doctor Day will provide you advocacy tools and skills to make your voices heard. Sign up today and join colleagues from all across Wisconsin at the Capitol on May 5.
