HMS Newsletter

Fall 2015

It’s been 10 months since I took over as President of the Hellenic Medical Society of Philadelphia. I have to say, it has truly been an amazing experience meeting so many people in our community and talking about how we can grow our organizations. We took a break in the summer, some of use went to Greece J and here we are planning our fall and winter events.


It is my pleasure to present our quarterly newsletter:


Dinner Lecture – April 21 @ Valanni�����������������������������������������������������������s Restarant

Dr. Dean Karalis presented “Advancing the Knowledge of Hypertriglyceridemia”

Over 25 people attended this dinner lecture. Thank you to Astra Zeneca for sponsoring the event.


A Night For CLEO – June 30 @ Estia Restaurant

This was an event co-sponsored by HMS that raised money to benefit Dr. Theo Zaoutis and the Collaborative Center for Epidemiology and Outcomes (CLEO). Dr. Zaoutis gave us an overview of his project and answered questions.
