The Wisconsin Medical Society is now accepting nominations for its 2017 Physician Citizen of the Year Award. First established by the Society in 1982, the award recognizes and encourages Wisconsin physicians who volunteer their time and talents through civic and cultural activities—helping to improve the health and well-being of their communities.

Consider nominating a friend, colleague or personal physician for this award. Details and a nomination form are available on the Society’s website. The nomination deadline is Dec. 15, 2016.

Michael Ostrov, MD, MS, received 2016 Physician Citizen of the Year for his extraordinary efforts to further the conversation regarding advance care planning and end-of-life care in Wisconsin. A family medicine physician, Dr. Ostrov is chief medical officer for WPS Health Insurance and Arise Health Plan. He was recognized during the Society’s Annual meeting last April, and also was featured in the June issue of​ WMJ.
