Serving the Erie Community | Erie County Medical Society

 

In recognition of our public service commitment, here are some of the projects in which the Erie County Medical Society has been involved in the last few years.

 

 

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Erie County Medical Society has supported this event and recruited world famous physician Jerri Nielsen, MD to Erie to participate. Dr. Nielsen was team physician to the Antarctic Expedition in 1999 when she discovered a breast lump.

 

She had to do her own biopsy and give her own chemotherapy until spring arrived and she could be airlifted out of Antartica. She was an enormous inspiration to all women suffering this disease.

Doctors’ Offices Food Collection. We have in the past established stations in doctors' offices for the collection of over one ton of healthy cereals for Second Harvest Food Bank.

 

Erie County Bar Association Partnership. The Erie County Medical Society partners with the Erie County Bar Association in an effort to develop better means to serve the professional needs of the Erie community.

 

Child Behavioral Services Workgroup. We participate in this group to support family physicians in the treatment of child/adolescent behavioral and emotional disorders.

 

Therapy Dogs United. The Erie County Medical Society strongly supports the work of Therapy Dogs United in contributing to health and well-being through animal-assisted therapy.
