The KMS Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2018 in Topeka. The morning session will include the election of 2018-2019 Board of Trustees members, as well as the Members Forum that will consist of an open, facilitated discussion where KMS members are able to participate in an issue-oriented discussion of important topics facing medicine in Kansas. This is an opportunity for KMS members to share feedback and ideas with the KMS Board of Trustees.
- KMS is pleased to announce that Patrice Harris, MD, the Immediate Past Chair of the American Medical Association’s Board of Trustees, will join us at the meeting. Dr. Harris chaired the AMA’s Opioid Task Force and will be presenting an update on the organization’s progress around this important issue.
- The day will conclude with our Luncheon Keynote Speaker, Sam Quinones. Mr. Quinones is a journalist, storyteller, former L.A. Times reporter, and author of three acclaimed books including Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic, the 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award Winner for general nonfiction. The book chronicles the opiate crisis of a town in Ohio, and how that town came together to address dependency and work toward economic and social revitalization. Mr. Quinones is busy on the speaking circuit, recently speaking to members of the medical societies in Colorado and Indiana.
