ASA Physician Leader Becomes President of the Michigan State Medical Society
On April 29, longtime ASA member David Krhovsky, M.D., became president of the Michigan State Medical Society. Dr. Krhovsky is an ASA Alternate Director for the Michigan Society of Anesthesiologists and previously served as president. He serves as Vice President of Medical Affairs at Spectrum Health Hospital Group – Grand Rapids. Dr. Krhovsky received his medical degree from Wayne State University in Detroit and completed his residency at Detroit Medical Center.
Physician anesthesiologists are currently serving as president or president-elect of state medical societies in other states including Georgia, Massachusetts, and Utah. Serving within the leadership of a state medical society is an incredibly important component of an effective advocacy program. As state medical societies consider advocacy related policies and positions, it is vital for physician anesthesiologists to be involved in those discussions. As these leaders bring their expertise to the state medical societies, anesthesiology is better informed and most importantly, represented.
Congratulations, Dr. Krhovsky!
