PCMS Executive Director Bruce Ehrle has assumed the duties of President of Pierce County Project Access for a two-year term that began today, September 27, 2017.
As part of its ongoing community engagement activities, PCMS works closely to support the endeavors of Pierce County Project Access as that organization seeks to provide full access to health care for the citizens of the community through offering assistance for Affordable Care Act insurance premiums and coordinating donated care from generous physicians to patients in need. The joint PCMS/PCPA health literacy initiative announced earlier this year is one example of how both organizations seek to utilize their strengths and capacities to achieve positive outcomes.
Last year Bruce was selected by his fellow members of the Pierce County Project Access Board of Directors to be President-Elect which put him in line to be president of the board for two years starting this fall. In this capacity, he will help prepare for and chair board meetings, provide additional guidance on the direction and missions of the organization, and support the terrific efforts of PCPA Executive Director Leanne Noren (pictured here with Bruce holding his presidential gavel) as well as her dedicated, talented, caring, and compassionate staff who all strive to serve as a vital link between patients in need of access to care and the practitioners in Pierce County who provide those healing services.
The Pierce County Medical Society is extremely proud to be engaged on so many fronts across the area on behalf of its physician and PA members, none more so than regarding its partnership with Pierce County Project Access with its altruistic goal to see to it that our neighbors in need get access to the health care they so desperately require from the incredibly talented healers in the local physician community.
