A large number of physicians attended MSSC’s annual meeting on Dec. 6 at Doc Hangar. The Docs at Doc event was an opportunity to celebrate the year with colleagues and learn more about the restored B-29 Superfortress housed in the hangar.
In addition to remembering MSSC members who died during the year and approving next year’s MSSC budget, MSSC President Jeanne Kroeker, MD, presented a five-year review of MSSC’s finances and operations. She also announced that Colleen Loo-Gross, MD, was the 2023 recipient of the Dr. Joe Meek Young Physician Leadership Award.
Frank Berry, a volunteer and historian with Doc’s Friends, the nonprofit organization that owns and operates Doc, shared the story of how the airplane sat in the Mojave Desert for 42 years before being rescued and transported to Wichita. It now flies all over the country to air shows and educational events.
Dr. Kroeker closed the meeting by thanking MSSC members for the skilled and compassionate care they provide and wishing everyone a blessed holiday season.
