President's Message

Brenda Sue Houmard

By Brenda Sue Houmard, MD, PhD | SCMS President

Watching the Winter Olympics in Peung Chang, it was clear how vital all of the community is to the success of our superstars. It made me think of the four pillars of effort for our Society:

  1. Clinical issue of immense importance to our community
  2. Support of medical education
  3. Advocacy for physicians, physician assistants and the patients in our community
  4. Impartial venue for physician/physician assistant collegiality

I am honored that so many of you were able to join us on February 7 for our Kickoff Reception to highlight our clinical focus: the Opioid Crisis. I am confident that our collective efforts to address this epidemic will make our community healthier, happier and safer. We are currently finalizing the membership of our task forces:
