This week’s blog is a reflection. This weekend concludes my two-year tenure as President of the Greater Louisville Allergy Society, a professional association of area allergists who meet to network, learn best practices and discuss new research/therapies. As President of the Greater Louisville Allergy Society, one of the duties is to organize, plan and execute the Kentucky Allergy Society’s annual spring meeting. At the end of the meeting, a new president will be elected.
In the process of planning this weekend’s meeting, I’ve so enjoyed talking and working with my colleagues in Kentucky and Tennessee. I am reminded that there are so many talented and kind-hearted allergists in our region. I’m also reminded of one of my favorite expressions, “Iron sharpens iron.” I have held that mantra to be true since high school. I am at my professional best when I am surrounded by and sharing information with sharp, motivated, continually-educated peers. We all do better as a collective–working together for a greater good.
Not only has this been an exciting week as I put the finishing touches on the meeting details, I have solidified my plans to practice in Louisville in 235 short days! Why 235 days? Remember my blog about my non-compete expiring 12/31/13?
