A Letter From Our Co-Presidents

Welcome to the Fort Wayne Medical Society Alliance, a non-profit volunteer organization committed to promoting volunteerism in our community.  The FWMS Alliance has been in existence since 1939 as a philanthropic organization helping to serve the ever-changing needs of our community.  The core mission of the Alliance is to connect physician families and friends, promote community health and education, and support the medical education program and legislative awareness.

As we embark on our second and final year as Co-Presidents, Liz and I proudly stand with the incredible members that have made this past year a success.  In collaboration with our organizational partner (Fort Wayne Medical Society), a diverse and dedicated membership, and our community partners, we were able to serve many programs and initiatives, focused in the areas of:

  • Community Education (Sponsorship at Science Central)

  • Community Health (Super Shot Vaccination Partnership)

  • Food Insecurity (Community Harvest Food Bank, Aging & In Home Services-Meals on Wheels)

  • Educational Scholarships (Tapestry, Boy & Girls Club)

  • Homelessness (The Rescue Mission & St. Joseph's Missions Women's Shelter)

These initiatives were also made possible by the hard work of our volunteers in planning and hosting fundraising events and the generous support of our sponsors.  Each year we welcome new and existing members of the community to join our mission and organization.  We invite you to explore our website and discover/rediscover the impact our organization has made in the community and how you can support the FWMSA's mission.  Whether you choose to become a member, donate or attend one of our much-anticipated social events or fundraisers, your valuable support ensures that we stand ready to serve the needs of our community.

With Gratitude,

Vivian Tran and Liz Hathaway
