AOCPMR Journal
Announcing the inaugural edition of
The Journal of Osteopathic Physiatry


October 20, 2017

To: Floridians for Reliable Health Coverage

Great news - Sen. Debbie Mayfield and Rep. Ralph Massullo, M.D., have refiled the bait-and-switch bills for consideration in the upcoming 2018 Legislative Session! We’re so grateful to our sponsors for their continued support. You might recall that the bill passed the full Senate during the 2017 Session, but the House bill stalled after passing out of the Health Innovation Subcommittee.

President's Message


It’s that time of year again: graduations, vacations, family reunions, weddings…..while these busy events happen, summer is still a time of slowing down life’s rhythm a bit, taking some time to relax and reect. I hope each and every one of you has the opportunity to enjoy a bit of summer’s bounty, a chance to renew and recharge for the coming year.

Many, many thanks to Dr Craig Lichtblau, FSPMR VP, who presided at FSPMR’s Annual Meeting for me last month. His report is below.

We are already looking forward to FSPMR’s 2018 Annual Meeting which will be in conjunction with the Florida Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, July 18 – 22, to be held at The Breakers, Palm Beach. Please go ahead and mark your calendars now. FSPMR will also be meeting in conjunction with the AAPM&R’s 2018 Annual Assembly, October 25 – 28, to be held in Orlando. Mark your calendars for this one as well. Stay tuned for details of both events.

Thank you to Dr Andrew Sherman, FSPMR Board Member-at-Large, who has accepted my appointment as Membership Chair. We are aware that membership organizations nationwide are failing because of relying on an outdated business model, i.e., dues revenue……there is a lot of competition for physicians’ memberships, and most physicians no longer choose to belong to all of them, so membership #s are also falling. Young physicians no longer automatically join their specialty’s organizations, they are unaware of the value. So what is FSPMR’s value? Read Dr Sherman’s article in this issue of The Physiatrist's Voice to better understand the paradigm shift he will help to lead us through.

Again, it’s summer so remember to take some time for yourself, your family.

As always,
Matthew D Imfeld MD
