25th Anniversary of the Polish Medical Self-Government in Warsaw

On December 5-7, 2014 the Regional Medical Center of Warsaw celebrated the 25th anniversary of the polish medical self-government. The celebration was organized by the Naczelna Izba Lekarska (NIL), also known as the Polish Chamber of Physicians.

Present amongst the delegation representing the global and national medical and dental associations, were the president of PAMS Dr. Kornelia Król, the president of the Federation of Polish-American Medical Organizations Dr. Marek Rudnicki, the vice president of the federation, Dr. Janusz Kasina from Sweden, and honorary president Dr. Bronisaw Orawiec.

The series of meetings began on Friday in the Polish Parliament. Foreign guests, members of the Polish Chamber of Physicians and nine past health ministers from 1989 to the present were in attendance. The health ministers shared their thoughts on health care and how much it has changed since they were in office.

Later in the afternoon, the deputy speaker of the Senate of Poland, surgeon Stanisław Karczewski held a meeting. Foreign guests, representing 30 different medical organizations worldwide attended. Dr. Karczewski underlined that the Chamber of Physicians would also be celebrating 25 years of practicing in a free Poland, just as the senate. Amongst the 100 senators in Poland, eight of them are physicians who are actively engaged in running the self-government. During the meeting, foreign physicians had the opportunity to present their organizations, as well as familiarize themselves with the legislative processes of Poland.

On Saturday, December 6, at the Sofitel Victoria hotel, the Polish Chamber of Physicians held a meeting and historical session. Later that afternoon, Cardinal Nycz dedicated a mass to the physicians at Holy Cross Church (Kościół Św. Krzyża).

The main event was the anniversary gala at the Grand Theater (Teatr Wielki). Actors Piotr Fronczewski and Ewa Wiśniewska beautifully prepared it. There were performances by the Płock Symphonic Orchestra as well as by the actor/singer Janusz Radek. This interesting concept of celebrating the 25th anniversary of the polish self-government was eloquently covered by the polish physician’s newspaper “Gazeta Lekarska”.

We, as the delegation, stressed our desire to maintain contact and to continue to actively cooperate with the Polish Chamber of Physicians.

“Fifty Shades of Fashion” Fundraising Dinner 11/9/2014

 

Our First Annual Benefit Fashion Show “Fifty Shades of Fashion” took place on Sunday November 9th, 2014 at Stereo Club in Chicago. 205 people attended the fashion show, many of which were physicians as well as their friends and family. Thanks to all those who helped out, the event was huge success. Stereo Club provided the great music and beautiful venue. The Polish physicians who became runway models for the night created a breathtaking spectacle. Malgorzata Wajs, former model, directed the event. Our wonderful sponsors provided an unbelievable variety of clothes. Tasty food was served by Grota Banquets and appreciated by all those attending.

By spending some time outside of our busy professional lives making new friends, meeting colleagues, and cheering for one another, those who participated strengthened their professional relationships. It is much easier to refer a patient to someone when you know their face, not just their name.

“Fifty Shades of Fashion” helped us raise money for a scholarship fund to benefit medical, dental, and veterinary students of Polish heritage. Part of the profits will also be used to help organize a Christmas Party and gifts for a Chicago shelter for Polish single moms and their children.

We look forward to organizing more entertaining and relationship building fund raising events in the future!
