Interim Meeting Begins

The Interim Meeting of the House of Delegates began this morning with remarks from MMS President Bruce Auerbach, who called on delegates to be bold and creative in their solutions to health care's problems.

He said the public wants physicians to lead the development of health care solutions, and "we must not squander this opportunity."

He said, "People trust us with their lives, because we have earned it. They are now willing to trust us with the redesign of their health care system. Let's use the weekend to prove to them that we remain worthy of that trust."

The House of Delegates will vote on 34 resolutions tomorrow during the second day of its meeting. Today, reference committees heard testimony and comments on the resolutions, which cover topics in health policy, public health, and MMS administrative matters.
