Dear Colleagues,

In the words of Oprah Winfrey, "Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right." The new year is a time for reflection of the year past and resolution for the year coming. I have been honored to serve as your President of the Spokane County Medical Society for 2018. I will take this opportunity to reflect on some of the highlights on the year. Dr. Deb Wiser is your President for 2019 – I welcome her to the helm and she will give you the resolutions for the new year.
