Dear Members,

I have had the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors since 2020 and am honored to have the opportunity to serve as President of the Pulaski County Medical Society this year.  

I am proud of the Society’s accomplishments in 2023.  We have continued to partner with the Harmony Health Clinic and the 12th Street Health and Wellness Center over the past year, helping them to provide health services to underserved patients in our community.  Our local medical students have not only helped to provide care in these clinics but have also worked to expand the services offered.  I look forward to continuing our support of these student-driven projects over the coming year and hope to expand our involvement with and mentorship of these future physicians. 

We were able to gather in person again this year for our annual meeting, where we recognized Dr. Lawrence Mendelsohn with the President’s Award for a lifetime of outstanding contributions to medicine and Dr. Aleobe Eruemulor with the Outstanding Young Physician Award.  Dr. Kay Chandler, past PCMS President and current Arkansas Surgeon General, was our guest speaker.  These physicians exemplify the values of service to our patients and our communities that we, as a Society, strive to achieve.   Thank you to all the members, guests, and sponsors that contributed to another successful annual meeting. 

I thank all of you for your continued care for and service to the patients of Pulaski County and look forward to serving the Society in 2024.

Kelly Burks, MD
