Congratulations to our new office bearers for 2013:
Michael Houck, DO
President: David D'Spain, DO
Jessica Hals, DO
I feel it a great privilege and honor to
be elected your president for the year 2012 and I am very thankful for the trust you all have placed with me
with this office. Though Parker County Medical Society was incorporated in
1994, it has not been as active as one would have wished it to. With the
increasing medical community presence in Weatherford, it was felt necessary to
have a more active medical society that enables us to interact with one another in a social
environment and also to have CME programs locally. It is also imperative for us
to have a cohesive medical community where we can all work together in harmony
in an amicable atmosphere that could be more meaningful to all of us. I am glad
to say that we now have over fifty
active members to help us meet our goals.
In terms of CME we are trying to organize
quality CME programs on a quarterly basis in Weatherford. Our goal is to get
quality speakers from DFW area and national speakers whenever possible. As part
of TMA (Texas Medical Association) we also have access to a varied group of
speakers with expertise on medico-legal, office management, quality measurement
and EMR topics which often can be credited for ethics CME that we require every year.
We also plan to have a free Annual Health
Fair for the residents of Parker county organized by physicians and nurses. I
hope this will continue to be an annual event attended by the community and
supported by local business. Our spouses
play an important role in all our lives and endeavors and to that end we would
like to organize an annual Holiday Dinner in December for the physicians and
spouses. Lastly, we are working diligently to organize our internet site
www.parkerCMS.org to make it an effective tool for us to communicate with each
other, get information about health care changes and also be a source of information on local business which
support and provide medical and business needs in our community. I would like
to see the site develop into a source of information hub for incoming new
physicians to be able to connect with local business and also for patients to
get quick detailed information on physicians
in the community. We will have a section "circle of friends"
which will list businesses that sponsor and support the medical society.
I would like to specially thank Dr.
Michael Houck and Karen Brierton our executive secretary who have both put in
countless hours to make our common goal a reality. Finally allow me please to seek your
continued support and cooperation to make this Society truly purposive and
meaningful to all of us. Thanking you
all and looking forward to a wonderful year.
