President's Message, December 2018

Justin Schoen, MD, FAPA; WPA President

As 2018 comes to a close, I wanted to take a brief moment and reflect on our accomplishments. 

It has been a good year for the WPA: membership numbers are on the increase; we held two successful conferences (and our conferences for 2019 are set!); we are financially stable and have renewed our contracts for management services and lobbying / legislative services; we started a Political Action Committee; and we've engaged a handful of members in developing/discussing ideas for navigating burnout, which has become crucial to our profession.

I want to thank each and every one of you for your different roles in this success, as it is the membership that makes it all happen. And on that note, please renew your membership for 2019 if you haven't already! 

I have been incredibly fortunate to have met so many of you this past year, and I look forward to meeting more in the year to come. Remember to spend some time away from work and more importantly, time with friends and family.

Wishing you all a safe and Happy Holiday season!

-Justin
