T.J. Huckleberry, MPA
Executive Director

The Room
Where It Happens
According to Google, the word mentor means "an experienced or trusted
advisor." Having been the benefactor of several individuals who took up
this role, I also believe a mentor is someone who is there to give you good
advice when you need it. Speaking on behalf of the countless Berks County
physicians who have advocated on state and federal issues, Larry Light
personifies both of these descriptions.
For those who have never had the pleasure of working with Larry, he
recently retired from PAMED as the Senior Vice President for Political
Affairs. He was a PAMED lobbyist at the state and national levels for more
than 34 years. He is currently consulting on federal affairs. And he has been
a longtime friend to all County Medical Societies and an invaluable resource
to our member physicians (and Executive Directors).
A couple of weeks ago, I reached out to Larry for assistance with our
first Physician's Advocacy Academy. Not surprisingly, Larry jumped in and
helped. Moreover, he also provided me with the enclosed article he wrote.
He correctly believed his commentary would provide valuable insight on why
physicians should take a more active role in government. I was so impressed
with his message, and felt that its themes tied so strongly to our current
issue's point of discussion, that I decided to forgo my normal article and
share this with you all. In other words... I stole it.
Once again, thank you Larry for sharing the article and, more
importantly, for all that you have done/do for Berks County physicians.
We couldn't have asked for a better mentor!
