LCHM Spring 2017 - 4

FROM THE PRESIDENT

W

elcome to the first issue of the Lehigh County
Medical Society magazine Lehigh County Health
and Medicine. We are thrilled to provide this new
service to you, and look forward to your response,
ideas, and contributions.
Our inaugural issue covers a range of health issues, from
skin cancer, concussions and obesity, to how to help our senior
patients reduce falls, and the top 10 reasons people give for not
having a colonoscopy.
The articles are insightful, provide statistical and background
information, and tips and tools to consider using. The article
on obesity talks about the pros and cons of bariatric surgery as
a way to get on the road to wellness; the article on concussions
helps parents think about protecting their kids in sports.

You'll also find some fascinating opinion pieces in this issue.
One is a look back on a night in the emergency room from
a physician satisfied to have made medicine his life choice.
Another piece comes to us through the eyes of a fourth-year
medical student getting ready to start his residency program.
Additionally, an article talks about laughter being the best
medicine, and provides resources for doctors who may need
help lightening their load!

BRUCE D. NICHOLSON, MD

Lehigh County Medical Society President

We're enthusiastic about contributing to the conversation in
Lehigh County about how medicine and wellness can help us
form strong communities.
Thank you for reading!
