WHATLEY KALLAS CONGRATULATES ROBERT SELIGSON ON HIS APPOINTMENT AS THE CEO OF THE PHYSICIANS FOUNDATION

The attorneys at Whatley Kallas, LLP congratulate Robert Seligson on his appointment to be the Chief Executive Officer of The Physicians Foundation. Mr. Seligson is well qualified for this role, having over 20 years of experience advocating for physician interests, including serving as the Executive Vice President and CEO of the North Carolina Medical Society and as the President of the Physicians Advocacy Institute. Mr. Seligson has also served on the Board of Directors and as Treasurer of The Physicians Foundation. 

The Physicians Foundation is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits seeking to advance the work of practicing physicians to deliver high-quality healthcare to patients. It was founded under the terms of settlement agreements reached with Aetna and Cigna in class action multidistrict litigation filed on behalf of physicians and nineteen state and county medical societies against several of the nation’s large for-profit health insurers. Joe Whatley, Edith Kallas, and other Whatley Kallas attorneys represented the physician class and the medical societies in the MDL litigation and negotiated the settlement agreement that resulted in the creation of The Physicians Foundation.
