Doctor Day provides a unique opportunity for physicians to come together to advocate on behalf of patients and the medical profession. It features a wide range of hosts representing state medical and specialty societies, county society, health care organizations and strategic partners.
Doctor Day was held May 1, 2019 at the Monona Terrace with over 350 physicians. Event attendees started their day listening to issue updates by Governor Tony Evers, DHS Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm and Attorney Guy DuBeau. These issues focused on vaccines and the “personal conviction” exception for vaccinating children. The speakers also presented on Medicaid access and focused on ensuring more access to important Medicaid services by addressing historically low physician reimbursement rates, especially in psychiatry, emergency medicine and family practice
