Make Plans to Join Us October 15th in Raleigh for the Golden Stethoscope Awards and Presidential Inauguration Gala

We have made it through two of the most challenging years the health care community has had to navigate in some time. Many of our physician and PA members went above and beyond the call of duty, placing their own lives at risk, sacrificing precious time with family and loved ones, while selflessly serving their patients. The NCMS thought it only right that we celebrate all of the health care heroes who made a huge impact on our state — that’s why we are holding our first Golden Stethoscope Awards Gala this year! Be sure to mark your calendar now so that you may attend this event created exclusively for NCMS members, their guests and event sponsors.

In addition to the Inaugural festivities where we will honor outgoing NCMS President Michael J. Utecht, MD, FACEP and welcome Arthur E. Apolinario, MD, MPH, FAAFP, as the 2022-2023 NCMS President, we plan to celebrate an NCMS member from each of the four regions of the state with a Golden Stethoscope Award.
