SCMS CELEBRATING WOMEN IN MEDICINE
The Medical Society celebrates Women in Medicine by recognizing the contributions and successes of female physicians. The number of women in medicine is steadily increasing, and women comprise nearly a third of all U.S. physicians and half of all U.S. medical students.
SCMS understands the many challenges female physicians face in balancing a career and personal issues. We celebrate the many women in medicine who are proving that you can do it ALL!! Need a female doctor? Browse our list.

National Kidney Month and SCMS is raising awareness!
During National Kidney Month, the American Kidney Fund is asking people to make the Pair Up Promise—a simple pledge that can help prevent kidney disease. The Pair Up Promise asks you to “Do the Math”—add healthful choices to your lifestyle, subtract things that are unhealthy, and multiply the impact by spreading the word. More...
National Nutrition Month is an annual campaign sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The Academy promotes the importance of making wise food choices and incorporating proper physical fitness. Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right is the theme for 2014.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day will be celebrated on Wednesday March 12, 2014. On this day, RDNs are recognized as advocates of promoting a nutritional lifestyle around the world.

The Doctors Company offers a variety of Continuing Medical Education opportunities. In the month of March we will be offering the following Webinars that offer one CME credit per webinar.
