Dr. Meek

Nov. 1 is the deadline to make nominations for the 2018 Dr. Joe Meek Physician Leadership Award, which is intended to foster leadership among practicing physicians aged 40 years or younger and to develop future MSSC leaders.

Nominees should have the desire to develop their knowledge base and leadership skills by participating in local, state and national leadership-building events throughout the year. A commitment to making a significant leadership contribution to the practice of medicine is a key component to include in the nomination.

Submit nominations by contacting Denise Phillips at denisephillips@med-soc.org or 683-7558 for an application form. They’re also available at mssconline.org, under the Publications tab at the right.

Dr. Braden Foster, DO, of Wichita Family Medicine Specialists, is the 2018 recipient of the award. The award honors former KU School of Medicine-Wichita dean Dr. Joe Meek and his career promoting organized medicine and medical education in Wichita and across Kansas.
