PAMED's Annual House of Delegates Conference

Time to Make a Difference in
Pennsylvania Medicine
By: Mark Austerberry, PCMS Executive Director

T

he House of Delegates (HOD) convenes annually to debate
and act on resolutions and reports dealing with a myriad of
medical practice, public health and Pennsylvania Medical
Society (PAMED) governance issues. It also is an informative weekend
of continuing education, leadership development, advocacy, and
networking. This year the HOD will run from Friday, October 13, to
Sunday, October 15, at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Do you have any issues, concerns or problems that are affecting your
ability to practice medicine and carry out an effective doctor-patient
relationship?
One of the most direct ways for you to get involved is to submit
a resolution to the HOD through the Philadelphia County Medical
Society (PCMS) delegation. It is important that PAMED knows
the difficulties Philadelphia physicians face in their daily practice of
medicine. As the association's legislative body, HOD meets once a
year in Hershey, Pennsylvania, to establish the Pennsylvania Medical
Society's policies on key issues that affect the practice of medicine
from medical ethics to critical matters of public health.

PCMS appreciates the time and support given by the following
members as the 2017 PCMS delegation: Michael DellaVecchia, MD;
Daniel Dempsey, MD; Enrique Hernandez, MD; Cadence Kim,
MD; Harvey B. Lefton, MD; Henry Lin, MD; Max Mercado, MD;
David Sass, MD; Anthony Rosa, MD; Natalia Ortiz, MD; Anthony
Padula, MD; Stephen R. Permut, MD, JD; Kurt Miceli, MD; J.Q.
Michael Yu, MD; Dane Scantling, DO; Kathryne Sanserino, MD;
Kinnari Patel, MD; Graeme Williams, MD; Robert Kucejko, MD;
Sonia Bhandari, MD; Tamara Jette, MD; Adrienne Christopher, MD;
Ekamjeet Randhawa, MD; Jarett Beaudoin; Naiga Cotingham; Rachel
Thomas; Derek Tran; Sahlia Joseph-Pauline; Christopher Gable; Erik
Saka; Melody Esmaeili; Jack Wilkinson.
Since the business of the HOD consists primarily of resolutions and
recommendations submitted by delegations or by individual delegates,
each item of business is assigned to a "reference committee," consisting
of six members of the house. Each reference committee conducts a
hearing to receive testimony for or against proposed resolutions from
other PAMED members and delegates. The committee then formulates
recommendations for action by the full House, which votes to adopt,
reject, amend or refer (for further study or for decision by the Board of
Trustees) each recommendation. The House of Delegates exemplifies
PAMED's truly democratic governance.
