As the incoming President of the Hellenic Medical Society of Philadelphia and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I am honored to lead this organization for the next two years. I want to thank Dr. Denis Hadjiliadis for his excellent work as the past president. My sincere appreciation to our members for supporting this organization and helping it grow. I pledge that I will uphold the mission and goals of HMS and bring forth a strategic plan that will take the organization to a new level.
The mission of HMS is to promote and support medical research, educational and cultural programs that will enrich the quality of life in the Philadelphia area. My plan is to also increase networking opportunities and provide greater access to Greek medical professionals. Along with our board members, my intent is to grow the organization membership and provide financial stability. It is very important to increase awareness of medical professionals in the Greek community and my ambition is to provide a forum for medical students, physicians and allied health professionals to network and pave the way for future Greeks in the medical field.
I invite all of you to frequently visit our website for updates on our organization. We will be sending communication to all our members for upcoming events via email. Feel free to reach out to me or any of our board members for suggestions, advice, requests and ideas.
Sandy Tzaferos, PharmD
President, Hellenic Medical Society
