From the President
Dr. Christal Greene
I hope this Newsletter finds you well. This will be my last president’s letter to our membership as Dr. Meredith Lulich will be stepping into the president role for 2024. She has been an active contributor, engaged board member and I am grateful she has further committed to MOCMS by filling our presidential role.
It is always so heartwarming to see our community show up for the Hoosiers Outrun Cancer event. Snacks and coffee were a treat to those who stopped by. We learned last minute that being assigned a tent location did not mean there was a tent provided… So the MOCMS tent event became a table event! I apologize to those who were not able to locate us.
Our MOCMS book club will be held Thursday, November 9 and hosted at Dr. Gifford’s home. The book of discussion will be “The Hospital” by Brian Alexander. I look forward to discussing this non-fiction selection as it applies to medicine and healthcare in small town America. You are always welcome whether you finish the book or not. It is always a pleasure to spend an evening in discussion and reflection with our fellow physician colleagues.
As Dave has stepped into the Executive Director role, he has been busy transitioning our office space and streamlining our online presence. I am so grateful he has joined us and is willing to jump in and do the hard things!
Thanks again for all your support! Please let us know how we can better serve you, as a local doctor and MOCMS member! I have been honored to serve as MOCMS president and look forward to what the future holds in our organization. We can have influence if we choose to engage.
