206th Annual Collaborative Meeting Marked by Wellness and Resiliency

Many members faced unsettling conditions just to reach the Topnotch Resort in Stowe for the 206th VMS Annual Meeting, hosted in collaboration with the American Academy of Pediatrics Vermont Chapter, Vermont Academy of Family Physicians and the Vermont Psychiatric Association. This meeting, which was designed to highlight Clinician Wellness, will undoubtedly be memorable, as our members showed their unwavering dedication to participate despite an intense storm that produced enough water on the road to close the resort's driveway. Mother nature was not done testing our wellness resolve, as after an amazing array of morning breakout sessions provided us with information on relevant topics like: cannibis, infectious disease, childhood injury prevention and the treatment of sleep disturbances, the power went out at Topnotch. Attendees to our first "Clinician Wellness Summit" were undeterred, as we had a full room for our distinguished panel and keynote speaker, the American Medical Association's Michael Tutty. Luckily, the power came back on to fully amplify our inaugural VMS Talent show and Saturday night's 2019 President's Reception and Awards Dinner. VMS members also elected a new slate of Society officers including: Catherine Schneider, MD (Surgery, Mt. Ascutney) as VMS President, Simha Ravven (Psychiatry, Brattleboro Retreat) as President-Elect and Patricia Fisher (Family Medicine, CVMC) as Vice President. The VMS also adopted nine policy resolutions at our Membership Meeting, click here for our resolutions. Watch your email for a Green Mountain Physician edition dedicated to the meeting, including award winners, adopted policies, more photos and more highlights from the weekend. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this weekend!
