Why I joined:
I joined MCMS as soon as I moved to the area after having been an active member in my county and state medical societies elsewhere. It's a great way to start getting to know colleagues in a new place.
Why support MCMS?
I support MCMS because of the value it has brought to myself and my patients. I appreciate the advocacy that the organization does and that my input is taken into account. It's also good to see that MCMS supports medical students and residents so passionately. We need to be encouraging the next generations to have an active role in advocating the profession and our patients.
What do you think is the most valuable benefit or service offered by MCMS?
What I find to be the most valuable benefit is the already established relationships that MCMS has with local organizations which can truly affect change in our community.
What has MCMS done for you?
As the director of a Political Advocacy and Leadership Track for family medicine resident physicians, MCMS has been helpful in creating networking activities so that trainees can meet practicing physicians. MCMS has also helped strengthen my voice in our community and the in the state medical society.
