President's Message

Picture of John McCarthy, MD, President of SCMS

By John McCarthy, MD | SCMS President

I have had the honor of working as your SCMS president for nine months and as I have alluded to in previous letters, it has been a period of introspection, transitioning, and refocusing. We have taken a “no holds barred” look at the society to determine our value to you and to our community. We went so far as discussing the dissolution of the society as has happened in some communities. We discussed the value of the society in very raw terms. It has been a deliberate wide open discussion and I have been impressed by my colleagues on the board. You should be aware of their commitment and I would ask you to thank them for their intentional and time consuming work. And now it is time to move forward with our plans.
