Every year, hundreds of physicians participate in the Medical Society of Virginia’s (MSV) annual meeting, attending house of delegates sessions, caucuses, reference committees and educational sessions.
The annual meeting is an important event for MSV because it is where the house of delegates acts on numerous reports and resolutions and establishes policy to guide the society. This is also the time when they approve the budget and elect officers, directors and delegates to the American Medical Association. Attend this meeting so you can become informed on the latest issues impacting medicine in Virginia. Outgoing MSV President Hugh Bryan III, M.D.
will be recognized as he ends his term and Russell Libby, M.D., FAAP
will be inaugurated as MSV’s new president.
