Delaware County Medical Society Summer 2017 - 11

In addition to the typical "medical
society services" that are provided to
our members and their staff (practice
management, HR advice, publishing our
journal, continuing education programs,
personal assistance, meetings and events,
etc.), our DCMS has been quite involved
in many other issues, including:
*

The Delco Health Literacy
Coalition - promoting an
understanding of the challenges
for low-literacy patients and the
use of tools to promote effective
communications between patients
and their physicians, nurses and
other professionals;

*

The coordination of regional
programs to respond to the current
overdose crisis;

*

The Delaware County Suicide
Prevention & Awareness Task
Force;

*

The Delaware County Health
Advisory Board and the county's
Strategic National Stockpile (SNS)
and the Delco Medical Reserve
Corps for emergency plans;

*

The Domestic Project of
Delaware County (DAP);

And more!
