Wisconsin Medical Society, Medigram
On Tuesday night in Delafield, the Waukesha County Medical Society provided the opportunity for physicians to dine with their elected officials and discuss trending health care topics. Representatives Knodl, Hutton, Brandtjen, Duchow, Dittrich and Senator Kapenga attended.
Legislators responded to questions regarding vaping, direct primary care and telemedicine; however, the most discussed topic was the physician workforce in the state. While physicians were able to provide suggestions to help with the physician shortage, legislators said physician expertise is needed and legislators need to hear more from physicians.
