Dear Colleagues: The Medical Society is hosting a “Celebrate the Season Social” on Tuesday, November 28th at Studio 817 in Sacramento where we will also recognize our volunteer physicians. From the Board of Directors, to committee members, the museum docents, and our SPIRIT physicians, we are grateful to all members who volunteer their time and expertise to advocate on behalf of physicians and patients. The event is almost full, please RSVP here. I hope to see you all there!

As always, let me know what your medical society can do for you,
