Message from the President

Dear Colleague and Friend,

The Federation of Hellenic Medical Societies of North America was spearheaded by the Hellenic Medical Society of New York and established as a 501{c}3 non-profit organization in Montreal, Canada in 2002.
It has served as a networking link among the Hellenic Medical Societies and has supported scholarship, medical events, and international conferences.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it has served the community with informative teleconferences and is reorganizing to include all existing Hellenic medical societies and physician groups interested in forming new societies.
The new Executive Board of Dr. Christina Lucas from Detroit, Vice-President, Dr. Dennis Hadjiliadis from Philadelphia, Treasurer, and Dr. Elias Iliadis, from New Jersey, Treasurer voted in by representatives of Hellenic Medical Societies across the United States and Canada earlier this year have put together a comprehensive Mission Statement and updated the By-Laws.  Representatives of each established Hellenic Medical Society in the United States and Canada are participating in the quarterly teleconferences and a visionary agenda has been put forth.
  1. Establishment of networking and support of activities of the individual societies
  2. Blueprint for the organization of new Hellenic Medical Societies 
  3. Educational teleconferences for all Hellenic physicians and health professionals
  4. Collaboration with ethnic medical federations in the United States and Canada
  5. Collaboration with Hellenic and Cypriot authorities and medical organizations
  6. Support for the Birthright Greece program

Hopefully, in the summer of 2022, the Federation of Hellenic Medical Societies of North America will be co-organizing a Global Medical Conference of Hellenic Medical Societies from abroad, Greece, and Cyprus, and the Greek authorities and Greek Universities with medical schools.

Topics will be on the latest developments in Medicine and Surgery.

We are asking all interested doctors to communicate their intention to participate in the Global Medical Conference in Thessaloniki on July 8-10 2022, by sending us a message using the contact us form.
We are enthusiastic about the prospects of the Federation and look forward to everyone's participation to provide a voice for Hellenic medicine.
