With your help, we can provide a strong voice in support of the medical profession, improving healthcare for both doctors and patients.
The Lehigh County Medical Society, founded in 1852, serves as an avenue to unite Lehigh County physicians into a single body to advocate for health policy that provides the highest standard of healthcare for the people of Lehigh County. A membership-based, not-for-profit non-partisan organization, the LCMS welcomes all physicians, from all specialties, to join and benefit from the professional and social opportunities that the society offers. "We speak your language. We will help you with your problems."
The mission of the Lehigh County Medical Society is to encourage physicians and healthcare professionals to have the highest moral and ethical standards, to counsel and censure them when necessary, to serve as a strong and united voice for our Lehigh County physicians, our patients and our community, to promote healthful living and well-being and to advance the highest standards of healthcare and service in our region through education, service and advocacy. The vision of the Lehigh County Medical Society is to be a relevant and influential leader in the Pennsylvania Medical Society, to unite our physicians and empower them to deliver compassionate, ethical and evidence-based healthcare of the highest quality and value to our community.
As we head toward year end, it is time to think about nominating a Resident or Fellow for the LCMS Humaneness Award. The Lehigh County Medical Society created this award for residents and fellows of Lehigh County. The purpose is to commend humaneness demonstrated by a Resident/Fellow Physician and observed by a medical student, Director of Residency Training, physician colleague, nurse or allied health care professional. This humaneness is characterized by particular skills in working with people, patients and their families, and understanding human as well as clinical needs especially in the kindness of treatment.
Previous winners are Gabriela Firak DO, Aminatu Akande MD, Jeanne Zukas, DO and Jarom N. Gilstrap, MD.
