Dr. Char, MOCEP President Quoted in NY Times
“Welcome to Missouri — America’s Drugstore,” said Dr. Douglas Char, an emergency room physician in St. Louis. “We aren’t just allowing abuse, we’ve created a business model for dealers.”
Pres. Char Issues a Call to Action: Join a MOCEP Committee!
The work of the Missouri state chapter focuses on 6 areas – Education & Programing, Research Grants & Awards, Legislative Affairs & Health Policy, Membership, Communication and Chapter Finances. Each of those committees depend on physician members to make things happen. This is your opportunity to get involved in MOCEP. We know you are busy but hope that you’ll volunteer a few hours to work with colleagues from across Missouri to:
1) Raise awareness and fight for issues that impact our patients, practices and families
2) To create education opportunities, and identify research projects worthy of our support
3) To share news about what we are doing with peers and the public
4) Ensure that our chapter has the people and resources need to address the issues that impact Emergency Care in Missouri
Please send an email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or our Executive Director (Cecile Landrum at email@example.com ) and we’ll get you assigned to one of the committees. A list of the committees is included below.
We greatly appreciate your time and involvement!
