iPad Pros for Primary Care Resident Physicians

Thank you to all who donated last year.  This enabled us to provide iPad Pros to each of 12 new physicians in our Community and Family Medicine Program at Truman Medical Center – Lakewood.  This was so successful that we’re repeating this fundraiser again on May 16, 2017.

The UMKC Family Medicine Residency is one of the most comprehensive family medicine programs in the country as well as one of the largest. With 36 residents and two fellowships, over the past 20 years, we have had more graduates than any mid-west residency. Our mission is to provide an unequaled opportunity to be a successful family medicine physician in a variety of practice environments. Truman Medical Center – Lakewood is the home base for this program. Truman Medical Centers, Missouri’s only safety net hospital is committed to providing care for our most needy people and training tomorrow’s workforce.  Your contribution to this project plays a role in attracting the best and brightest new physicians into our program.

Last year’s beneficiaries are now graduating into their 2nd year of their Family Practice residency taking their iPad Pros with them.  These devices allow them to manage their patient’s records wherever they are using Cerner’s native iOS version of PowerChart Electronic Health Record with its built-in Dragon Medical voice recognition system.

Special Fundraising Event

Last year Dr. Timothy Neufeld, Dr. Paul Terranova and I walked and played 72 holes at the Nicklaus Club of LionsGate.  This was so much fun we’re going to repeat this event on Tuesday, May 16 and adding at least one other participant, Paul MacCready.  This year’s goal is $20,000 (roughly $300 per hole).   Stay tuned to my Facebook (www.facebook.com/vorand), and Twitter (@dvoran) feeds on 5/16 to follow us.

You can help us reach our goal by going online and making your Tax-Free donation to Truman Medical Center Charitable Foundation’s Advanced Technology and Equipment Fund (see instructions below).
