Winter Newsletter

Sandy Tzaferos, PharmD

Today I write my last newsletter as President of the Hellenic Medical Society of Philadelphia. It has truly been a great experience leading this organization and benefiting our members and the hellenic community.
Winter has been a busy one for the hellenic organizations and we continue to plan more events for the new year!

Vasilopita 2017
One of our most successful events with over 80 attendees! This event grows every year and we are proud to have hosted with Hellenic Lawyers, Chamber, University Club and Heritage Society. A $2000 donation was designated to the Ionian Village Camp in Greece that was severely damaged by a tornado. Father Evagoras was present to accept the donation. Thank you to all that attended and supported our event!

Christmas Party- December 2016
Hosted by the same organizations as our vasilopita event at La Veranda. Another successful event with a great turnout and good food! Over $1000 was raised and donated to CLEO – Dr. Theoklis Zaoutis and his efforts to educate and train Greek Physicians and healthcare professionals on proper disinfecting and handwashing.

Scholarship Opportunity
For those of you who know a medical/allied health professional student of Greek descent, please direct them to the HMSPHL.COM website. Applications are being accepted for a scholarship of up to $2000

HMS 10th year anniversary Gala
Save the date! May 5, 2018 will be our celebration of 10 years as Hellenic Medical Society of Philadelphia. This will be a black-tie gala and celebrated Greek style with dinner, dancing and honoring special people.
