"Smart, motivated people who care, doing the right things for the right reasons: That is how I see the FSMB. It has a rich history of collaboration with a wide variety of stakeholders to promote public health and safety, and being on FSMB's Board has given me a chance to play a more active role in that effort. FSMB is an organization with good ideas, but it also has a history of action and results, which is gratifying." - Jon V. Thomas, MD, MBA, FSMB Board of Directors
