Central States Occupational and Environmental Medical Association (CSOEMA)
I am honored to serve as the President of Central States Occupational and Environmental Medicine Association (CSOEMA) for the 2015-2016 year.
Having been a part of this organization for over 10 years, one thing that has always struck me is the openness and welcoming nature of the group. CSOEMA is made up of medical professionals from all walks of life. Our members have as varied interests as they do medical practices; but we all have one thing in common, and that is that we are committed to our specialty and we are committed to life-long learning.
As a member of CSOEMA, you avail yourself of years of experience and knowledge from our group. Beyond that, you avail yourself of new friendships that can last a lifetime. I would encourage you to peruse our website to get to know our organization. Then attend one of our educational conferences. Typically, we have three meetings a year; two in the spring and one in the fall. These meetings are planned by our members, themselves; so, they are most assuredly the most up-to-date and relevant information for your practice. It is a cost-effective way to obtain valuable CME/MOC credits. Aside from the educational value of our conferences, it is also a chance to renew old friendships and build new ones.
If you are already a member of our organization, I would encourage you to become more involved in your organization. Contact me or any one of the executive board members and express your interest to become more involved. We will do our best to find a way to get you involved in an area that is of interest to you.
I look forward to serving as your president for the upcoming year.
