Harris County Medical Society Helps Inner City Boy Scouts

  Houston, TX...Approximately 287 Boy Scouts in the Urban Scouting Division benefited from free physicals coordinated by the Harris County Medical Society (HCMS) and Houston Academy of Medicine (HAM) on Saturday, June 4, at the Boy Scout Office, 2225 North Loop West. These physicals allowed the boys, many who could not afford it otherwise, to attend Boy Scout camp and play organized sports at school in the coming fall.

The Urban Scouting Division of the Boy Scouts of America was established in 1987 to encourage at-risk boys to become involved in scouting, providing them with leadership skills and challenges in nature. This is the 19th year HCMS has coordinated this event, which was made possible by volunteers consisting of HCMS physicians, medical students, nurse practitioner students, registered nurses and nursing students from the University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston and Texas Woman’s University.

HCMS would like to thank the following member physicians for giving so generously of their time: Drs. Rebecca M. Beyda, James Butler, William M.C. Chen, Kyle F. Dickson, Bruce D. Edison, Ray M. Fitzgerald III, Laura K. Grubb, Craig D. Johnson, JoAnne L. Rogers, Marc A. Rozner, and Tad M. Shirley.

            The Harris County Medical Society, established in 1903 is the professional organization for physicians in Harris County. It is the largest county medical society in the nation with a membership of nearly 11,000 physicians and medical students. Its mission is be the leading advocate for member physicians, their patients and the community, in promoting the highest standards of ethical medical practice, access to quality medical care, medical education, research and community health.
