Sherwood Neurosurgeon, Kathryn Chenault, MD, recently illustrated her commitment to improving health care in this community and our state by joining the Arkansas Medical Society.

"As a society member, Dr. Chenault is part of a statewide network of over 4,000 Arkansas physicians, residents and medical students, dedicated to protecting the interests of their patients and improving the health of Arkansans," said Society President, Gene Shelby, MD, of Hot Springs. "Some of the society’s most recent efforts include advocating for responsible and practical reforms such as the patient centered medical home and reducing health care spending; supporting Medicaid expansion; passing legislation to establish a statewide Trauma System and the Clean Indoor Air Act; and supporting the development of a prescription drug monitoring program to combat the abuse and diversion of prescription drugs."

The Arkansas Medical Society is a voluntary professional association, established in 1875, representing more than 4,000 physicians and medical students as well as the patients and communities they serve.
