MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
It is a great honor to assume the Presidency of Michigan Society of Pathologists. I am fortunate to take on this task guided by wonderful mentors and surrounded by outstanding colleagues.
My main goal for the society is “expansion”. I would in particular like to focus on the following areas, to further enhance and strengthen our society:
- More active participation by residents and the new generation of pathologists.
- Promoting the MSP research day to the next level by expanding the number of resident participants.
- Reaching out into the pathology community: to fulfill this goal a pathologist representative “ambassador” has been chosen from each institution, to maximize participation and achievement of goals.
- Locally and statewide, there are numerous well established Pathology Departments which have many pathologists with tremendous experience and expertise in their respective fields. I would like to highlight their achievements, expertise and interests through the Academic sessions of our society and will be inviting them as speakers at our biennial conferences.
I hope that by taking these first few steps we will be able to focus on objectives that benefit everyone associated with the society.
Thank you all for giving me the opportunity to serve as your president for the next two years. It is truly a great honor and privilege. I hope to fulfill the trust and opportunity you have given me, to support our society and its members. Looking forward to a great year ahead!
