228th HCMA President

Dear Members of the Harford County Medical Association.  I am honored to serve as your 228th President. 

We live in unprecedented times and are witnessing a pandemic of the magnitude we never faced. But our society has a long history and has been through two wars and the 1918 influenza. Our society served well in those difficult times and we are well-equipped to make through the struggle ahead. This is because of physicians like you who are working on the front lines-and risking your personal safety-to care for those stricken by the coronavirus. You all are true heroes. Thank you for all you do every day. 

The HCMA will work hard to serve you all as you continue to take care of the nation’s sick. We will coordinate with other counties, state, national and specialty organizations to advance and support practicing physicians. 

Under the leadership of Dr. Ghumman we started working with a new management company led by Mark Thompson. We brought in new young members to our board. We are streamlining the services we provide and making our organization fiscally responsible.

We are encouraging medical students to learn about organized medicine and get involved in organized physician groups. And we are recognizing the physicians for their charitable contributions. 

As issues arise please do not hesitate to contact me, Dr. Frank Santoro our Vice president or Dr. Laureen Rubino our Secretary and treasurer. We are here to serve you.

Be safe.
