Resolutions Now Available for WSMA Member Input

More than 20 resolutions are now available for WSMA members to review in our password-protected virtual reference committees, and more will be added in the weeks to come in anticipation of the 2021 Annual Meeting of the WSMA House of Delegates in September.

All members are encouraged to take a moment to review and provide feedback on these resolutions via the links below. If adopted by the House, resolutions help to guide WSMA's advocacy efforts on behalf of its members, their patients, and the greater medical community in Washington.

WSMA members may also provide testimony during the live reference committee sessions scheduled as part of the virtual Annual Meeting. Learn more about the meeting, which is free for members, and register online.
