MSSC large meetings canceled

Due to ongoing concerns about the coronavirus, the Medical Society has canceled all its large-group meetings through the end of this year, including the annual meeting in December.

“The potential risk of having that many physicians in the same room is too high,” MSSC Executive Director Phillip Brownlee said. “And if we limit attendance and have people spread out, that defeats one of the main purposes of these meetings, which is interacting with other physicians.”

Brownlee said the MSSC budget for 2021, which normally would be approved at the annual meeting, will be voted on electronically this year.
