Last night at the UMKC SOD, we had the first official informational meeting for those interested in the local leadership steering committee for MOMOM 5 to be held in Independence August 12-13, 2016 at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena. Thankfully, 15 people braved the post parade traffic and attended the event.
Co-chairs, Dr. Merle Nunemaker and Dr. Jeremy Bowen welcomed the crowd and explained their role before turning it over to me to paint the bigger picture of how and when the clinic all comes together. There was excitement and good questions. The current focus is on fundraising and filling out the leadership team. There is room for more, and it will take a strong team to accomplish the task. Regular monthly meetings won’t start again until 2016. If you have interest, email GKCDS director Sam Silvey.
Every MOMOM is a unique adventure, and I can’t wait to see where this one leads. All aboard!
