A Message from Society President William Rousseau


Winter is Coming


Our Hinman year is off to a great start thanks to our September Membership Meeting speaker,
Dr. Mike Pruett. With 240 attendees (a sell-out due to room limitations) the meeting was a big
success. It was wonderful to see so many members and prospective new members gathered to learn about treating medically compromised patients, then staying late to eat and socialize at our first in-person membership meeting since January 2020. Many thanks to Jackie Sarvis and the InterContinental Buckhead for providing us with a great meeting.


Now that we have learned how to take care of our most fragile patients, the next two
Membership Meetings will focus on taking care of ourselves. In November, Mr. John McGill will speak about personal finance
and achieving financial independence. He will give us valuable advice on how to retire comfortably after a career of hard work. The meeting will be November 15 at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia. As mentioned above, the September meeting sold out due to room limitations, so please register early to guarantee your spot. 


The January meeting will feature Dr. Uche Odiatu
speaking about health and wellness. We will learn how we can enjoy not only our day-to-day life, but also the financial independence we began to
achieve at the November meeting. This meeting will return to the Georgia Aquarium. Save the date, January 20, and please bring your staff.

Be sure to thank the Trustees and Trustee Chair, Dr. Eddie Pafford, for their continued generosity in supporting Society events. Their subsidy allows
all members to attend Society events at a greatly reduced rate.

Please remember to sign up for a committee for the March Meeting. General Chair, Kate Robinson, and her Program Chairs, Jim Roos and Randy Phillips,
have put together an outstanding program, and they are counting on all of us to provide the Hinman Hospitality that makes our Meeting unique. Working
during the Meeting satisfies one of the requirements for membership and earns you an invitation to the General Chair and President’s Reception at the
College Football Hall of Fame as well as a one night stay at the Grand Hotel on Mobile Bay during our Annual Meeting, June 3-5.

It is an honor to serve as your President. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and a happy holiday season.


- William
