The San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS) joined Live Well San Diego as a recognized partner on May 5, 2018, at the organization’s annual “White Coat Gala”. The County Board of Supervisors proclaimed May 5 as the “San Diego County Medical Society Live Well San Diego Day,” because of SDCMS’ efforts to support population health and wellness through community engagement and education, and proactive communication throughout its physician members to their patients and the broader public, in alignment with the County’s Live Well San Diego goals.
SDCMS is a non-profit organization founded in 1870 and chartered by the California Medical Association (CMA). Their vision is “Physicians United for a Healthy San Diego”. With over 4500 physician members, SDCMS’ mission is to act independently, as well as jointly with CMA, to promote the science and art of medicine, the quality care and wellbeing of patients, the protection of the public health, the betterment of the medical profession, and the adjudication of ethical relations of our members, as well as the provision of education to our members in scientific, social, legal, ethical and medico-economic aspects of medical practice.
