Chart Notes  September, 2016

PPGV hits 400 members. With recent talks given to Wayne State University Dept. of Family Medicine and UM Medical School we now have 400 members, mostly physicians. It looks like we will continue to present with UM psychiatry medical student rotation.  We are scheduled for a grand rounds at Western Michigan University in October.

New Leaders.  Jody Jones, head of the Michigan College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of MiCOG Advocacy Committee and Kim Yu, immediate past president of the Michigan Academy of Family Physicians and a member of MAFP Advocacy Committee recently joined PPGV. Welcome doctor leaders!

Concert Across America. PPGV, led by Sonya Lewis’s organizing effort sponsored a local concert on September 25 in conjunction with over 300 concerts to decrease gun violence across America. Louis Nagel, retired UM professor of piano played a Beethoven sonata. Kevin Fitzgerald conducted a chamber orchestra playing Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. It was beautiful music! And PPGV received over $2500 in donations. Music helps bridge a gap in our culture that is now filled with too many injuries and deaths.

Video of Concert to End Gun Violence

Please enjoy this video from last month’s Concert Across America to End Gun Violence featuring pianist Louis Nagel performing Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata and Kevin Fitzgerald conducting Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. The concert was wonderfully received and we are grateful to everyone who participated, attended, and contributed. Not only did we raise awareness about the epidemic of gun violence in America, we also raised over $2500 thanks to the generosity of our audience members. We hope that through music, we inspired others to work for meaningful change in our country. We are grateful to Genesis of Ann Arbor for graciously hosting this event.
