Happy Tuesday! Enjoy your NCMS Morning Rounds!

November 30, 2021

November 30 is #GivingTuesday!

Become a part of our campaign goal to increase the North Carolina Medical Society Foundation’s monthly donors by 25 on Giving Tuesday!

The Recurring Monthly Campaign is the key to securing resources to build health in North Carolina. This fund will provide financial means to invest in a whole host of innovative initiatives over the next decade. Knowing that we can count on monthly gifts, allows us to better plan financially for both short- and longer-term solutions.

Please consider joining our relaunched monthly gift program today. Your monthly gift, no matter the size, will be multiplied over time increasing your impact on health. Can we count on you in 2021 and beyond?

American Medical Association Telehealth Use Survey

The AMA is conducting a survey to assess the current landscape and use of telehealth among physicians and other health care practitioners. The goal is to learn more about physicians’ experience with telehealth, including ongoing challenges, benefits, and opportunities. Survey results will help inform future telehealth research and advocacy, resource development, and continued support for physicians, practices, and health systems. The survey will close on December 31, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
