How Do You Treat Entitled Gen Z Patients?

A recent paper published in PLOS|One, an interdisciplinary journal with the goal of making well-conducted research freely available, looked at the health care preferences of various generations of patients – from 18-29 year olds to those aged 65 and over.

The graphic below breaks down the findings and may give you some new insight into how you relate to each age group in your practice.

NCMS Committee Interviews Candidates for Leadership

The NCMS’ Nominating and Leadership Development Committee will convene this Saturday to interview the eight candidates for open positions on the NCMS Board of Directors, the NC AMA delegation and on the committee itself.

The committee will announce its recommended slate of candidates for election on July 5. All NCMS members will be able to vote beginning on Sept. 19 with the election results announced at the NCMS’ Annual Business meeting at the LEAD Health Care Conference in Raleigh on Oct. 4.
