A letter from the Kansas City Medical Society president Scott W. Kujath, MD, FSVS, FACS:
As my second year as President of the Kansas City Medical
Society wraps up, I am pleased with the achievements made regarding
the future of KCMS. We held two in-person annual meetings
and celebrated physicians in the Kansas City metro area,
hosted a book club for physician leadership training, exerted
our physician voice on masking in schools during the peak of the
pandemic, the opioid crisis and recreational marijuana clinical
concerns. The work we have done with our Foundation included
physician education, community health programs and over $8
million in donated health care for the uninsured.
While we have many amazing and active physicians in the community
on our Board of Directors and Leadership Council, we
need more! This Society is over 140 years old and the mission is
to improve the health of all in greater Kansas City through leadership,
advocacy and innovation. It takes all of us to carry this
mission forward for generations to come. We are excited to engage
new physicians, physicians young in their careers as well as retired
physicians to elevate involvement in the Society and continue the
tradition of serving greater Kansas City.
Please consider reaching out to your peers, administrators, vendors,
health systems and other contacts to encourage their engagement
of time and treasure to promote the ongoing mission of the
Kansas City Medical Society.
Best to All,
Scott W. Kujath, MD, FSVS, FACS.
President, Kansas City Medical Society
