President’s Perspective – March/April 2022

Pino D. Colone, MD

MSMS President

Dear Colleagues,

“The future cannot be predicted, but futures can be invented.”

For more than a half-century, those words from a Nobel Prize-winning physicist have impacted the way leaders around the globe approach the responsibility and the opportunity of leadership.

The future of medicine is in our hands, and it’s going to be what we make it.

Last year, the Michigan State Medical Society partnered with Public Sector Consultants to conduct in-depth survey analysis of what that future might look like, and the answers crafted a brilliant road map towards a better health care delivery system that continues to put patients first.

In this edition of Michigan Medicine®, you’ll hear from some of the roughly 60 physicians and health care leaders who participated in the research, you’ll learn about where medicine is headed, and – we hope – you’ll be inspired to help build the future one patient outcome at a time.

Thank you for your leadership.

Thank you for reading.


Pino D. Colone, MD, MSMS President
