Medical Staff Bylaws Town Hall, March 2023

Seattle Children's has revised and updated our medical staff bylaws. This was a Q&A session that gave members an opportunity to learn more about the proposed Medical Staff Bylaw changes and ask questions prior to voting to approve the changes. Members were able to review the new bylaws documents and submit questions prior to the town hall.
