North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) staff spends much of their time interacting with our members, keeping our finger on your pulse to know what is important to you and how we can help. A few recent events include:

  • Facilitating an opioid prescribing CME with Christopher Grubb, MD, for the Wayne County Medical Society.
  • Taking part in the Burke County Medical Society meeting, which featured Seth Hawkins, MD, an NCMS Foundation Community Practitioner Program (CPP) participant, who shared riveting stories about his work in wilderness rescue medicine. Incoming Burke County Medical Society president Gandhari Loomis, DO, a former CPP’er, also attended.
  • Working with medical students at the Brody School of Medicine at ECU and the Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine at Campbell University as well as others to offer information on effective advocacy and the benefits of organized medicine.
  • A presentation on legislative advocacy to Mecklenburg Emergency Medical Associates.
  • The Practice Wellness Summit for practices that are part of the NCMS Employee Benefit Plan was held at the NCMS Center for Leadership in Medicine. The Summit offered participants information and resources to design and implement effective worksite health strategies.
