WAFP 75th Anniversary Celebration

Friday, August 11, 2023

Pre-registration for this event is now closed. On-site registrations will open at the Ridge Hotel on Friday, August 11, at 7 am.

Join us at the beautiful Ridge Hotel as we celebrate 75 years of Family Medicine in Wisconsin. For the first time in five years, we’ll be hosting an in-person CME event which will include a celebration of all we’ve accomplished in our first 75 years as an organization. Each one of you, along with every member who came before you have shaped Family Medicine in Wisconsin and deserve to be celebrated.

Having a solid community of colleagues is key to a fulfilling career in family medicine. This celebration will provide opportunities to connect with Family Physicians from across Wisconsin and help you grow a network that you can lean on for support and guidance.
