SFMMS 150th Anniversary Celebration & Gala

In 2018, the San Francisco Marin Medical Society (SFMMS) will celebrate its 150th anniversary, and we are planning an extraordinary 150th Anniversary Celebration & Gala to recognize this important milestone in our organization's history.

Please join us on March 15, 2018 at the St. Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco to celebrate 150 years of advocating for physicians and patients.

Come together with many of the Bay Area's most influential stakeholders in the medical community and network with colleagues, SFMMS leaders, and local dignitaries. Guests will be treated to a lively reception from 5:30-6:30pm, followed by a formal seated dining experience, exciting presentation, and brief documentary highlighting the medical society's achievements in its 150 years of leadership.
We hope you will join us for an evening of festivities as we celebrate our rich history, our members, and their contributions to the local medical community.
