​UW Ob-Gyn residents Ushma Patel, MD, PGY-1, Matthew Wagar, MD, PGY-1 and UW Ob-Gyn Division of Academic Specialists in Ob-Gyn Director Makeba Williams, MD visited Wisconsin legislators on May 1 as part of the 2019 Wisconsin Doctor Day event.

Hosted by the Wisconsin Medical Society, Doctor Day brings hundreds of Wisconsin physicians, residents and medical students to the state capital to advocate for issues affecting them and their patients. This year, participants focused on Medicaid reimbursement expansion and extension of postpartum coverage, as well as the public health benefits of herd immunity and childhood vaccinations.

Thanks to all who spoke with legislators on behalf of their patients and colleagues!
