A Letter From Our President

On May 11, 2022, the Fort Wayne Medical Society Alliance gave me the honor of being elected to be your President for the 2022-2023 term.

I moved here 11 years ago with my husband, Dr. Randal Hughes. Originally, I am from Southern Illinois, where I attended and studied political science at Southern Illinois University on a Congressional scholarship.

I find myself volunteering for many organizations around town. I have been involved with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and EasterSeals. I love fundraising and I don’t know a stranger.

The initiative that I chose this year is the Opioid epidemic. With help from our alliance members and community partners we hope to bring public Narcan boxes, kits, and fentanyl test strips to area businesses, along with a Narcan vending machine to an area hospital. I belive this project can make a positive impact for Fort Wayne residents.

I look forward to the year ahead and meeting new members and friends.

Tonya Hughes

FWMSA President, 2022-23
