2018 MSMS House of Delegates
The House of Delegates is the official policy-making body of the Michigan State Medical Society. Resolutions are the vehicles used to debate and determine the policies, priorities, and direction of MSMS. A well-crafted resolution is essential to present the most effective case for those issues that are of importance and concern to you.
Resolutions were submitted in early 2018 and considered on April 28-April 29 at the HOD meeting.
Be on the lookout for a full report from the 2018 meeting in the next edition of the Bulletin
