The Philadelphia County Medical Society continues a proud, steadfast tradition from its beginning in 1849 of advocating for patients, public health, and high professional standards in medical practice and education. As we emerge from the COVID pandemic it is most critical that now more than ever we address the challenges that confront us on social, economic, and political fronts.

“Never has there been such a time that the differences in healthcare outcomes between ethnic groups has been so noticeable than during this era of COVID; because of COVID, there has been an increase in suicide rates; unsafe work conditions; psychological effects of physical isolation; economic troubles; civil unrest; and so many deaths,” said Natalia Ortiz-Torrent, MD.

We thank all of the members of the Philadelphia County Medical Society for their unwavering and heroic dedication to the health and wellbeing of their patients during the pandemic, and remember those physicians and healthcare workers who sacrificed their own lives to save others, which is why the 2020-2021 PCMS Awards are especially noteworthy.
