This month, we capture physicians and guests at the Dec. 4 MSSC annual meeting at Exploration Place

There was a large crowd as the MSSC annual meeting on Dec. 4 at Exploration Place. The event featured KU Chancellor Dr. Douglas Girod, MD, who outlined growth and development at the University of Kansas during his tenure there so far, and guest speaker Dr. Rob Gibbs, MD, KMS president, who spoke about wins and challenges for physicians in 2018 and what to expect in 2019. The ceremonial passing of the gavel took place from outgoing MSSC president Dr. Jed Delmore, MD, to 2019 president Dr. Michael Lievens, MD. MSSC also honored Wichita family physician Dr. Terry Poling, MD, for his years of service to the AMA, from which he retired at the end of 2018. The evening also featured the annual Wine with a Purpose silent auction, which raised money to support Project Accessí mission of coordinating care for uninsured Sedgwick County residents.
