At La Veranda, nearly 40 members and Board of Directors participated in our semi-annual members meeting and all enjoyed the social evening. Topics include the presentation of the Scholarships, Board elections and presentation of the ongoing programs and future directions of the HMS. The meeting was sponsored by Cordis Vascular and all members appreciated the update.
The Scholarship committee reviewed the completed applications of several outstanding students and selected 2 students to receive the HMS Medical Student Scholarship. Please join me in congratulating Catherine Sarris (New Jersey Medical School) and Harisios Tjionas (UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine) on their selection and award. The Medical Society and the Hellenic Community is very proud of you both and is looking forward to hearing of your success. Many thanks to the Scholarship committee: Fran Zappalla, Martina Harris, Tara Morrison and Sophia Pappas. Please see their posts on the Scholarship Recipient page.
