My fellow colleagues, I bring you greetings on behalf of the elected core of officers and the Executive committee of the LMA – USA. It has been a pleasure and indeed an opportunity to serve the association thus far.
We do invite all Liberians and friends of Liberia with a passion to serve those who are less fortunate than most of us, to join us in mobilizing our resources and maximizing our potentials to build a vibrant
association. Thus making the association one that is relevant and sustainable in impacting the lives of so many people immensely affected by the 14 year devastating civil war In Liberia. Remember, to whom much is given, much is expected. Liberia is on the road to recovery, but there is a lot to be done, and our focus foremost is a commitment in assisting in a significant way in the improvement and upgrading of the health care delivery system of Liberia.
We have had numerous discussions about our short-term and long-term goals, and the time for more pressing vigorous actions is now. The association remains inclusive, and we are again inviting each and everyone to join us and use whatever gifts you have been blessed with to serve others with a willing heart.
We do remain open to ideas and suggestions in improving our association in moving forward.
Alfred E. Shaw, MD, FACS
