With all of the demands and stressors placed on physicians in practice today, it’s easy to lose track of what calls most to medicine – the desire to help people live full and healthy lives. This gift comes from our hands, hearts and minds and creates a precious bond that extends through the physician to patients, their families and the larger community. We are healers and leaders.

Framed by this unique role of physicians, the Colorado Medical Society invites all members to celebrate the inauguration of incoming CMS President David S. Markenson, MD, MBA, on Saturday, Sept. 14. CMS will mark the occasion with an engaging day at the highly celebrated Denver Museum of Nature & Science – a delight to people of all ages that ignites passion for understanding and protecting our natural world through fascinating exhibits and interactive displays – culminating with a semi-formal Inaugural Gala that evening.

All museum exhibits, including the special “Extreme Sports” exhibit, will be open to CMS members and their guests during normal daytime operating hours, with exclusive evening access to the Gems and Minerals exhibit during the Inaugural Gala. The gala will feature dinner, music, dancing, recognition of CMS and component society leaders, and the swearing in of 2019-2020 CMS President Markenson.

The afternoon will include three hours of education geared toward the latest knowledge needs for members in all stages of their careers, from medical students and early-career physicians to late-career physicians and emeritus members.

A ticket fee will be charged for admission to the gala; CMS will provide daytime admission tickets to the museum at no cost to members and their guests. Be sure to register all of your guests (including children) for each component of the event they will attend so staff can have an accurate count. Supervised childcare will be provided onsite through the Children’s Activity Center (recommended ages 2-12) throughout the day and evening. Advance registration is required.

Ticket cost for the gala is $70 per person for active/emeritus physician members and their guests, and $30 per person for medical students.

SPONSOR A STUDENT: If you would like to cover the cost of a medical student’s ticket to the gala, please indicate this during registration or contact
