An Invitation from Your President

Henry L. Dorkin, MD, FAAP

On behalf of the Massachusetts Medical Society, I’d like to invite you to act, learn, and connect at the 2018 Annual Meeting, which will take place Thursday, April 26–Saturday, April 28, at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center in Boston.

As part of the Annual Meeting, this year’s Shattuck Lecture will be delivered by Mr. Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as part of our Annual Education Program: Epidemics Going Viral: Innovation vs. Nature. The full program features a world-renowned group of experts in global health.

Massachusetts could not be a more appropriate location for the exploration of a topic of such tremendous import, given the leadership role our state’s physicians take in the realm of global health research and infectious disease.

Please join us for an incredible educational opportunity, important discussions on policy and science, and the camaraderie of your peers.

Henry L. Dorkin, MD, FAAP 
President, Massachusetts Medical Society
