President's Message

School is out. It’s getting humid. They’re talking about hurricanes. It must be time for the June newsletter. I hope everyone is doing well and has some plans to relax for a bit this summer. I would encourage you to come to The Breakers in Palm Beach for a few days, July 18 - 22, for the FSPMR annual meeting. You can relax at the beach in between CME lectures. We are tag-teaming with FSIPP. Please click on this link to register: http://fsipp-conference.com/attendee-registration.html. If you are interested in the Saturday/Sunday sessions only (day and a half of CMEs) register at the lower Nurse Practitioner/PA rate and put in your degree. We would love to see you.

There is an FSPMR breakout on Saturday morning, July 21, speakers and topics listed in this issue, along with our annual business meeting and dinner that evening which will include elections for the new board. Check out the slate of candidates in this issue. And please don’t forget to RSVP to lorry4@earthlink.net if you will be attending that evening’s dinner. I would like to thank AllegianceMD for sponsoring the dinner. Please check out their website: https://allegiancemd.com, and see their article, also in this issue, for more about their products and services. They do an excellent job with EHR/PM and are very open to making the system compatible to your needs.

Sometimes the days go by slowly but the years continue to fly by. I can’t believe it has been two years since I took over as your president. It has been an honor and a privilege to lead such a great group of physicians. We are one of the premier PM&R state societies in the country. We have been able to help other state societies with their problems because we are on the forefront of what is happening in health care.

I would like to thank my board (Craig Lichtblau MD, VP, Jesse Lipnick MD, Secretary, Mark Rubenstein MD, Treasurer, Michael Creamer DO, Immediate Past President, and these Members-at-Large: Mitchell Freed MD, Andrew Sherman MD, Diana Hussain MD, and Bao Pham DO) for all of their guidance during my tenure. It was always a team effort. I appreciate their time and valuable input. The quarterly teleconferences and the occasional emergency teleconference were always lively and productive.

Of course, none of this would happen, were it not for the best Executive Director in the country, Lorry Davis. She keeps our ship running in a straight line and her easy manner makes her a pleasure to work with. I cannot thank her enough for all that she has done to help me through this journey.

I would also like to thank my wife Jane for her support. After 34 years, she is an expert on helping me focus on what is truly important. I look forward to continuing on the board as the immediate past president and will help in any way to keep our PM&R family in good stead.

As always,
Matthew D Imfeld MD
