[MMA News Now, Aug. 28, 2014]
The MMA has launched a new section
on its website highlighting Minnesota physicians who go above and beyond the call of duty.
“The Inspiring Physicians site is focused on promoting the image of physicians in the state and supporting our strategy of advancing the role of professionalism in medicine by promoting our members,” said Robert Meiches, M.D., MMA CEO. “It’s a nice way to spotlight the great work by our members.”
The first group of members to be highlighted include:
Robert Bösl, M.D.
The lone physician in Starbuck in western Minnesota was named the 2013 Country Doctor of the Year by Staff Care. He used his retirement savings to open a clinic after the town’s only hospital closed in 2005.
Brian Sick, M.D.
Since 2007, Sick has volunteered as medical director for the Phillips Neighborhood Clinic, which sees more than 1,100 patients annually for no cost. Sick received an MMA Community Service Award for his work with the PNC.
Dionne Hart, M.D.
This spring, the Minnesota Psychiatric Society named Hart its Psychiatrist of the Year for 2014. Last November, she received the MMA Foundation’s 2013 Minority Affairs Meritorious Service Award.
