The MSSC Annual Meeting on Dec. 5 gave members a chance to mingle, hear from state and national medical leaders and dip into checkbooks to support the cause of Project Access. Dr. David Barbe, president of the American Medical Association, provided an update on the AMA’s activities and mission, while noting he “cherishes the times I get to come back” to Wichita, where he did his family medicine residency. During the evening, the annual Wine with a Purpose silent auction – featuring some beer as well – raised $3,900 to support Project Access’ mission of coordinating care for uninsured Sedgwick County residents.
