Today we find ourselves more divided than ever. We are wounded and bleeding profusely.
The Medical Society of Delaware will not be complacent regarding the issue of guns and gun violence. We must be united in the cause for a peaceful and law-abiding society.

If you have been involved in health care in any way shape or form, consider yourself part of the “Provider Club.” If you really think about it, you will likely be mortified to learn some things about the word that are disturbing.Read More.
HOW MANY HUGS DO YOU GIVE IN A DAY?
“A physical exam is like a hug…you can’t get enough of them.” I’ve mentioned this comment at various settings and it still resonates with me today from when I first heard it. Read More.
