December 2017 Board Highlights

On December 5, 2017 the Hartford Medical Society Board met. Here are the highlights of that meeting.

Dr. Jackie Lyon was appointed as Treasurer allowing Dr. Mick Bedard to serve as a Trustee of the society.

The 2017-2018 Budget was approved.

A new initiative discussed by the board is to host a marquee-level speaker with the help of the UConn Health facility. An amount of $10,000 was budgeted to cover speaker fees for the 2018 event.

The board identified the parameters for two programs to help medical students: the HMS Summer Fellow and a UConn Medical Student Research Day award. The HMS Summer Fellow is a $3,000 fellowship to help a UConn medical student perform research that benefits the application to and growth of community medicine. The UConn Student Research Day award will give one $500 award to recognize the most effective research to advance community medicine. This award will be given by a committee of HMS during UConn’s Annual Student Research Day.

The board approved the management contact with Association Resources for three more years.
