From the President
KSHP hosted a one day Spring Meeting on May 10th at Louisville Slugger Field. The meeting was a big success. The programming committee really “hit it out of the park.” We were entertained with a wide variety of topics and speakers from many backgrounds and practice settings. Attendees even got to hear from NBA legend Dominique Wilkins about the effects of diabetes on his life and snap a few quick photos. Now that the Spring Meeting is behind us, the programming committee is already hard at work planning the Fall Meeting scheduled for October 10-11, 2013 in French Lick, IN. Please mark your calendars now and plan on attending. I know the KSHP programming committee will do a phenomenal job of planning this educational event.
As we transition from spring to summer, we are looking ahead at the transition in leadership at KSHP and will have opening in the offices of President Elect, Treasurer, and Board of Directors for KSHP. These positions will be up for election in late summer and take office at the Fall Meeting in October. I want to reach out to all members to consider service to KSHP through one of these offices. If you or someone would be a good candidate for any of these offices, please contact Bob Oakley or myself and we will be glad to provide more information.
