SSV Medical Society News - 2018 - Volume 7 - Issue 04 - April


Dear Physicians: Thank you to all physicians who completed the SSVMS Membership Survey. After reviewing the results, it is clear that our community is full of physicians interested in connecting with fellow physicians. Luckily, as we jump into Spring, there are many ways to connect with your colleagues, beginning with SSVMS' 150th Anniversary Physician and Family Social on May 5, 2018, 6:00-8:30pm at Sutter's Fort Historical State Park (Register Here). This is the perfect opportunity to connect with colleagues and meet each other's families over tasty appetizers, fun games and live pioneer music. On May 20, 2018, let's do good to feel good by participating in the Serotonin Surge Race for the Clinics 5K/10K Run/Walk Race. All proceeds will benefit safety net clinics including our SPIRIT Program. When you register, be sure to join Team SSVMS Joy of Medicine to run, walk, or crawl with your fellow physicians and SSVMS staff members.

As always, let me know what your Medical Society can do for you.

Aileen Wetzel
Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society CEO

SSVMS’ Vetted Vendor Partners play a key role in helping us serve the physician community and increase the value of membership. Doctors look to SSVMS to provide solutions for their practice needs since they have limited time and resources to do this on their own. By providing quality referrals to SSVMS Vetted Vendors, physicians can focus on what they do best... caring for their patients.
