MO chapter consists of physicians from around Missouri and is run by an elected board of officers. The members and officers meet quarterly for the sole benefit of patients, physicians and the practice of Medicine.
The new AAPS Missouri Chapter finds California Physician Dr. Tom LaGrelius’ message applicable to our goal for patient healtcare in the State of Missouri:
“Health care is different from other critical human needs like food, housing and shelter, which are actually more expensive. Illness is unexpected, confusing, terrifying. It strikes randomly and unevenly. Only recently have we found effective tools to battle and prevent it. We naturally want all humanity to have equal access to those new and effective tools, and in our zeal to accomplish that we forgot that free markets are the best way, the only way, to achieve that goal.” Dr. Tom LaGrelius
