Many thanks to all who have given me the opportunity to serve as President of KAM, it is with great humility that I approach this responsibility and I am grateful for your support. The primary message I have for our membership is to get involved. KAM will continue to need your support and energy this year as we work through issues that are important to our community. Please contact me any time to find out how you can be more involved in KAM.
Membership in KAM is valuable, and the return on investment for your membership fees is phenomenal. The Academy provides us with a voice with state lawmakers, support in working with insurance companies, advice on legal and compliance matters, and leadership and professional development for our medical community. The KAM Foundation, through Knoxville Area Project Access, helps those in the Knoxville community who are falling through the cracks and is a vital part of providing quality care for our community. Please take a moment to invite a colleague who isn’t a member of the Academy to join us.
Thank you again to all who support the Knoxville Academy of Medicine and best wishes in the coming year.
Neil Coleman, M.D.
Knoxville Academy of Medicine President
