OUTGOING PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE:

G

ood evening. Thank you all for
being with us tonight.

Time goes by so fast. I
remember about 20 years ago, on my 21st
birthday, I got a card from my Uncle Jim.
Uncle Jim is the youngest of my Mom's
siblings, so he's always seemed like he was
closer to my age and sort of generationally
closer to me than my other aunts and
uncles. He's a really sharp guy with a
doctorate in Animal Nutrition and he
researches pasture-based beef production.
I've always looked up to him.

QUINCY HARBERGER, MD
Outgoing President

Anyway, he sent me a birthday card
that said something like, "Congratulations
on turning 21. From here on out, the
birthdays keep coming faster and faster."
And I remember thinking, "What the
heck is he talking about?!?"
I now know what he was talking
about. And I've really noticed it over this
past year.
First of all, I want to say thank you
for giving me the opportunity to serve
as President of the York County Medical
Society these past 12 months. It's been
such an honor. I've gotten to meet with
and learn a bit about so many wonderful
members of our community - women
and men doing great work for all of us
in York County - and I've been able
to see firsthand much of the amazing,
inspiring work going on in York right
now. I couldn't be more grateful for those
experiences.
With regard to our medical society,
I want to deeply thank our Executive
Director, Liz Torres, for all her hard work.
Liz, thank you for always going above
and beyond in service to our members
and the York County community. To our
Board of Directors, thank you for your
commitment and tireless efforts in support
of the protection and advancement of our
community's access to safe, high-quality,
affordable healthcare.
This past year, as a county medical
society, we've been able to increase our

membership and reduce our expenses,
while at the same time adding new
services, such as our brand-new quarterly
magazine (York County Medicine), new
social media accounts on Facebook,
Instagram, and Twitter, and a new emailbased communication and balloting
system. We've also continued to host our
annual legislative forum and we have a
very interesting and useful CME event
planned in the coming months.
At the end of the day, though, whatever
we are able to do as a society, we are able
to do only because of the strength of our
membership. This past year we've drawn
on that strength. It is the same strength
shown by our members' commitment to a
profession that ensures our children may
grow up strong and healthy; our friends
and neighbors may survive and thrive
through illness and injury; and that, when
we all come to the end of our lives, we
may do so with peace and dignity.
The physicians who have made up the
York County Medical Society over the
past 146 years have each, on their own,
demonstrated characteristics that our
community values greatly. As my Mom
and Dad have always told me, each one
of us is unique and special in God's eyes.
And that is no doubt true.
What is also true, I believe, is that
when we work together with shared
purpose to support our common values,
we become so much more than we would
without the benefit of each other's diverse
perspectives, strengths, and experiences.
As a team of complementary experts, we
are better than what we might otherwise
be as individual cogs in a healthcare
hamster wheel.
So, as we continue working together
to protect and advance our community's
access to safe, high-quality, affordable
healthcare, it is my great honor today to
wish Dr. Dan Hornyak all the best in the
coming year. Dan, thank you for offering
your time and talents to the York County
Medical Society. Good luck!
