As President, I am pleased to report that our organization is strong, active, and hard at work. Thank you for your continued support. Your membership supports our award-winning programming for healthcare professionals in our region, sustains our philanthropic efforts in supporting medical students, residents, and fellows, and recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the education and training of learners in Geriatrics.
2016 has been a productive year. I hope you had the opportunity to attend one or all of the programs offered. The last program of the year (Fall Program) will take place November 1 at the University Club in Oakland. This year’s program includes a panel presentation featuring Jack Cahalane, PhD; Steven M. Handler, MD, PhD, CMD; and Andrew Watson, MD, MLitt, FACS, who will discuss new applications of Telemedicine for care of the elderly. The program promises to be outstanding. Mark your calendar and join us on November 1 as the evening is both educational and social, and is a perfect opportunity to network, socialize, and reconnect with colleagues, while benefiting from a quality presentation. This also is an opportune time to recruit a member by extending an invitation to attend the program and to join us in our professional efforts.
A recap of highlights from this year include:
The Pennsylvania Geriatrics Society – Western Division is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all older persons. It is a non-profit organization of physicians and other health care professionals committed to the provision of quality health care for older persons.
