                                                       Dear OGS members,
                                                       As my 4-year term as president of this incredible
                                                       organization comes to an end, I want to take a
                                                       moment to reflect back on some of our groups
                                                       achievements.

                                                       First, and certainly the most important is the
                                                       completion of our 19th annual educational
                                                       conference in Sunriver. It continues to amaze me
                                                       that our educational committee reliably
                                                       produces such an outstanding learning opportunity
                                                       for those that care for the geriatric population in the
                                                       Pacific Northwest. This year’s meeting was no
                                                       exception. The quality and passion of our speakers
                                                       is second to none.
                                                       Equally important to the didactic education is the
                                                       ability of our members to meet and socialize face to
                                                       face, sharing ideas, concerns, problems and
                                                       solutions in order to improve their daily practices,
                                                       and ultimately, the quality of care for our geriatric
                                                       population. I hope you all continue to take
                                                       advantage of the social gatherings as well as the
                                                       committee meetings to share your ideas and stay
                                                       involved with our organization.

                                                       It was icing on the cake to return home from the
                                                       meeting to find a picture of Mary Olhausen, our
executive director and Lisa Miura our state representative to AGS, in the national AGS
newsletter recognizing our chapter for one of two State affiliate awards for 2018. The award recognized
our groups ability to build networks among the community that cares for our geriatric population. Most of
us are aware that one does not work in geriatrics for fame and recognition, but it never hurts to know that
your colleagues on the national level are impressed by what we are doing.

I am also very happy to see continued momentum with the reorganization of the former Oregon Medical
Directors Association as the Oregon Society for Post-Acute & Long-Term Care Medicine. Albeit long, the
new name more accurately reflects the true focus of the organization and is more inclusive of all of the
disciplines that work in this important area. I invite anyone who is interested in this area of care to reach
out to myself, Mike Grady or Mary Olhausen to join this group.

In the political and public policy arena, OGS continues to be involved in state and local policy meetings
including the Oregon Medical Association. We also participate on the national level through our COSAR
representative Lisa Miura. In the future I believe this is one area that needs continued growth and
participation by our members.
OREGON GERIATRICS SOCIETY - FEBRUARY 2019 E-NEWS
As the experts in the care of older adults in Oregon, our voice needs to be heard by those who ultimately
make policy and distribute resources. If you have strength or passion in this area, please reach out to the
OGS board, Lisa Miura, Mary or myself, to become involved.
As we head into 2019, I would like to challenge you, the individual members of our organization to
continue to remain actively involved with OGS. Your participation in the annual conference is critical to
allow us to continue this outstanding learning and networking opportunity. Please share this event with
your colleagues and invite them to attend. Become involved in a committee, or even better, suggest a
new committee and be the organizer. Be on the lookout for knowledgeable, passionate speakers and
share their information with the education committee. Let us know of a topic your think should be
addressed at our next meeting.

Finally, I want to remind you all that this year will be our 20th Annual OGS Conference. We look
forward to celebrating this landmark occasion with all of you. I also want to thank Preston Peterson, MD,
FACP, for agreeing to take the helm as President for the next several years as well as the OGS board for
their continued efforts. We can all rest assured that OGS is in good hands. Thank you for all your hard
work caring for our geriatric population.
Best,
Darin Prulhiere, MD, MS, CMD

OREGON GERIATRICS SCOCIETY – 19TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
                 October 5-7, 2018 – Sunriver, Oregon
                                              RECAP
                                                   The Oregon Geriatrics Society celebrated our 19th
                                                   annual conference in October. As always, our
                                                   conference was held in beautiful Sunriver, Oregon.
                                                   This year, we had 182 attendees from Oregon and
                                                   adjacent states, including Washington and Idaho. Dr.
                                                   Barbara Messinger-Rapport, of the Cleveland Clinic
                                                   and Ohio VA system, delivered a keynote address on
                                                   de-prescribing. The meeting draws geriatricians,
                                                   primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician
                                                   assistants, nurses, social workers, and others. Our
                                                   exhibit room was filled with 32 exhibitors including
pharma, state agencies, health system recruiters, and many vendors aligned with geriatric care. Many
donations were made to our silent auction, which raised $988 to support the scholarship fund for
students, residents, and fellows. OGS also celebrated accolades from the American Geriatrics Society,
as we were 1 of 2 states to win the Affiliate Achievement Award; marking our high level of active
involvement and membership engagement.

                                                  Looking ahead to October 2019, we will be back in
                                                  Sunriver to celebrate our 20th Annual Conference.
                                                  For the very first time, Oregon will be the host state for
                                                  the national American Geriatrics Society meeting in
                                                  May 2019. OGS will be planning a NW reception at
                                                  AGS, to host our local membership. Your active
                                                  involvement builds the strength of our society. Please
                                                  join us this year and consider joining one of our active
                                                  committees; including education, governance, and
                                                  membership.
