September 01, 2017

Michael Munger, MD, president-elect of the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), will keynote Wisconsin’s statewide health workforce summit September 27, which is sponsored by the Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce (WCMEW). WCMEW is a collaboration of stakeholders across Wisconsin, including the Wisconsin Hospital Association, Wisconsin Medical Society, Medical College of Wisconsin and UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health, among others.

Munger will provide opening remarks to hospital leadership, clinicians, and community partners—laying the groundwork for in-depth discussion of public policy, transformation of care delivery, and health workforce data presented throughout the day. He will highlight trends and challenges facing health care professionals nationwide. He will also present best practices identified by the AAFP, emphasizing the role of health care leadership at all levels and across sectors to strategically plan for the needs of tomorrow’s health care workforce. He will present time-sensitive solutions to transforming care delivery and lay the groundwork for conversations around clinician training, community partnerships and present data on projected shortages.

While in Wisconsin, Munger will also tour educational institutions and health care facilities. He is a practicing physician in Leawood, Kansas, where he serves as vice president of medical affairs for primary care at Saint Luke’s Medical Group in the Kansas City area. He also serves on the Employed Physician Enterprise Board of Directors. Munger had a critical role in the group’s process to secure recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home, Level 3, based on 2011 outcome, access and patient satisfaction metrics.
