Attorney General Stein Addresses NCMS Board, Staff, Committee Chairs


RALEIGH — The North Carolina Medical Society is kicking off 2024 with two days of meetings and planning, plus a visit from Gubernatorial candidate Josh Stein.

Attorney General Stein laid out his priorities for healthcare in a speech over lunch on Saturday.  Stein says he is committed to improving the working environment of healthcare professionals, dedication to an expanded healthcare workforce in rural areas, and the protection of things such as telehealth.  He also said he believes in the strongest support for the rights of patients and their physicians to make their own healthcare decisions.

Stein is running for Governor this year in a crowded field that includes NC Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson.  Robinson was also invited to address the NCMS group but had other commitments.

Meetings included a seminar on Friday afternoon that went over NCMS priorities and guidelines for NCMS Committees.  The full list of committees and ways you can get involved can be found by clicking here.

On Saturday, the NCMS Board of Directors met along with staff and several committee chairs to discuss the NCMS 2024 strategic priorities, a report from the Secretary-Treasurer, an update on the 2024 LEAD Conference, and a look at the 2024 election.

The North Carolina Medical Society has several member candidates.  We are currently featuring them in interviews in our 2024 Candidate Series.  Look for those interviews in Morning Rounds and on our website.
