GREETINGS FROM THE SCMSA PRESIDENT
August 11, 2021
Dear Alliance Members,
As I have been reading the history of the SCMSA over the summer I am amazed at all that has been accomplished, and all that remains unchanged through out the eighty-seven years of our organization. In 1934, Mrs. Hunt of Texarkana, and President of the Woman’s Auxiliary to the Texas Medical Society, met with thirteen Doctor’s wives in Smith County to discuss organization of a County Auxiliary. Mrs. Hunt stressed the following three-fold purposes of such an organization.
1. Self Education- ethics of the medical profession, keeping the ideals of profession high
2. Public Relations – for friendships among Doctor’s wives
3. Organization for the good of the community - which in our case was to aid the hospital project by beautifying the grounds, sending flowers, magazines, etc.
The unanimous vote was to organize!
Our mission remains much the same from the inception of our amazing Medical Auxiliary-Alliance. We are so blessed to be part of this organization and have greatly benefited from those who came before us! Let’s have a great year together as we strengthen, support and serve our medical families!
Blessings to All,
