It is with great sadness that we share, our friend and colleague,
We are so sad at the loss of a great physician, who advocated for patients and physicians alike and lead our county medical society for more than 10 years.
As we grieve the loss of our friend, we are pleased to share news of a scholarship fund to benefit medical students and Family Medicine residents: Bob Brockmann, MD, Student and Resident Scholarship Memorial Fund. Spearheaded by CAFP and the CAFP Foundation, ADEMS is pleased to be able to participate in continued celebration of his life.
Those wishing to honor his memory can make a charitable contribution to this fund, by sending checks to:
The CAFP Foundation, 2224 S. Fraser St., Unit 1. Aurora, CO 80014;
payable to “CAFP Foundation.”
Please write “Bob Brockmann, MD, Student & Resident Scholarship Fund” in the memo line of your check.

ADEMS member and former CMS President Jeremy Lazarus Inaugurated President of AMA
(July 13, 2012) Jeremy Lazarus, MD, clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine and former president of the Colorado Medical Society, was inaugurated as the 167th president of the Amercian Medical Association (AMA) on June 19, 2012. He begins his term at one of the most historic times in American health care, following the Supreme Court's recent decision on the Affordable Care Act.
During his inaugural address at the AMA's recet annual meeting in Chicago, Dr. Lazarus said, “I am excited to be your president, now let’s run this race together and get the job done. Now is the time to rise up. Rise to the occasion. Be persistent. And keep going no matter how tiring it may get.”
He is committed to addressing the mental health needs of combat troops, veterans and their families, as well as victims of violence and abuse.
“As AMA president, my focus will include the need to better integrate mental health care into other aspects of medical care - to provide more resources to treat more people,” said Dr. Lazarus.

New Interactive Portal Educates Physicians, Staff about EHRs & Meaningful Use
Colorado Medical Society and CO-REC Collaborate to Launch Free Interactive Website Available to All Colorado Providers
The Colorado Medical Society and CO-REC have developed a free, self-guided educational tool to assist medical practices with many of the resources needed to achieve “meaningful use.” The online portal takes physicians and their staff through step-by-step training and educational modules to help them select, implement and meaningfully use certified electronic health record (EHR) technology. The portal is available to all Colorado physicians or practice staff members.
The Arapahoe-Douglas-Elbert Medical Society (ADEMS), founded in 1890, is an association of South Metro physicians which are “unified in promoting the science, art and business of medicine, the betterment of public health, the education and welfare of medical professionals and of the people served by our physicians.”*
ADEMS serves as an advocate to its approximately 1,000 physician members living and working in our counties. ADEMS is not for profit and is a component organization of the Colorado Medical Society. ADEMS proudly partners with the five area hospitals and one medical school in our catchment area to coordinate and develop educational and social programs for the physicians. With frequent publications and programs advocating available resources, ADEMS helps physicians navigate through the rapidly evolving practice environment and the ever changing requirements in the practice of medicine.
