Prescription drug abuse is a serious issue across the county. Medical Society of Milwaukee County physician members hold a prestigious role as thought leaders with the National Governor’s Association.
The National Governor’s Association (NGA) Policy Academy on Reducing Prescription Drug Abuse-Wisconsin Core Team tapped the Medical Society as the lead organization tackling this issue from Milwaukee. Physician members take on key roles recommending and developing initiatives to prevent prescription drug abuse.

The Medical Society of Milwaukee County is proud to sponsor and serve on the EMS Collaborative. The Collaborative comprises an advisory committee of ER physicians and local EMS personnel – fire chiefs and paramedics - to discuss and develop policy recommendations for the County’s EMS Council. As a result of the expert thought leadership from Collaborative members, new policies such as the area hospital no ambulance diversion policy have been enacted to ensure efficient, quality care for patients.

Free & Community Clinic Collaborative
The Medical Society of Milwaukee County joins the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership in supporting the Free and Community Clinic Collaborative (FC3), a coalition of safety-net clinics, which strive to provide quality primary care, urgent care and seamless navigation to affordable insurance for low-income, uninsured and underinsured patients in Milwaukee County.
MSMC recognizes the importance of free and community clinics to the health of our Milwaukee County neighbors in need, and encourages primary care physicians, specialist physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other providers and community health care workers to volunteer.
In this new era of health care, we invite you to visit the FC3 website to see current volunteer opportunities, news updates from the FC3, videos of the clinics and their volunteers, and learn more about liability and volunteer criteria.
