Annual Joy of Medicine Summit

Each year, the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society's Joy of Medicine Program hosts the Joy of Medicine Summit. It is a time to join other physicians in the region for fellowship and hands-on educational sessions to help build resilience and bring joy back to the practice of medicine.
