MESSAGEFROMTHEPRESIDENTMEDICAL ASSOCIATIONOFTHEBAHAMASDr.RobinRobertsA famous local physician saidona recent occasion,"Icould have been richbutI chose to serve." Suchanepithet is ideally suitedtoDr. Vernell Allen. A, one of the first Bahamian physicans, her options, while limited by the social mores of the time, were considerable to specializeandpractice medicine to her lucrative financial advantage. She chose, however,toenter the public sectorandto serve bothherphysician colleaguesandthe general patient population as a skilled medical administrator. To the great good fortune of the Bahamian medical establishment,shewasappointedChief Medical Officer, some twenty years ago. While she held this post,andwithherguidanceandadvice, significant strides have beenmadein the practice of medicine in the Bahamas.Duringher watch:1.ManyyoungBahamians have been encouraged to takeupthe challenge to become doctors; othershavebeen encouraged to specialize in disciplinesthatsuitedthem best.2.Publichealthcareinthe Family Islands improved immensely,andwheneverpossible a physicianhasbeenpostedthereandenouragedtowork, sometimesundervery difficult circumstances, And,3.Thecommunityhealth clinics inNewProvidenceandsome of the Family Islandshavebeen established or expanded,andproperly staffed. These arebutthree of themanyaccomplishments that highlight herworkas Chief Medical Officer. I have personally benefited from Dr. Allen's advice as a junior doctor returning home afterstudyingabroad,andagainwhenI returned from specialty training.Herguidanceandinterestinmy careerhavebeen most helpfulandencouraging. She never held backwhen1,andmanyothers, haveadvancedideastoimprovethe delivery of health care in this country. To a large extent, as a result of all her work, the Bahamas has, in thepasteveral years, received international recognition as a model for the delivery of health careinthe region. Thishasbeenduein no smallmeasureto her vision, enthusiasm and influence, as she livedouther commitment to serve both her professionandher fellow Bahamians. "Dr. Vernell Allen, as a pioneer Bahamian physician, a pioneer Bahamian medical administra tor, a Bahamian Chief Medical Officer, you have distinguished yourselfamongyour peersandcolleagues,andhavebroughthonourandacclaim to our noble profession.Mayyouhavemanyyears to baskinthe Bahamian sunshine,andinthe afterglow of amostsuccessful career."DR.ROBIN ROBERTS.5.
