Date:6/18/2009

EAST LANSING, Mich., June 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carol Horowitz of East Lansing was recently installed as president of the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) Alliance.

Carol will serve a one-year term overseeing the activities of the 1,200-member organization of physician spouses that focuses on public health issues and supports activities of the state medical society.

Carol's husband, Ronald N. Horowitz, MD, is the medical director of Sparrow Hospital Laboratories in Lansing.

Recent projects of the MSMS Alliance include educational programs on domestic violence and bullying in schools. This year, the MSMS Alliance is working to educate the public about alcohol and drug abuse in children, childhood obesity and heart disease in women. The Alliance also is very active in legislative issues such as health care reform.

"The issues that affect health and wellbeing are too important to put off," Carol said in her inaugural address. "Don't wait until tomorrow to pickup the phone to call your legislators. Send an email or go visit their offices. Tell them you stories. Offer your experiences. Put a human face on these issues."

Born and raised in Chicago, Carol graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a degree in education and then taught third and fourth grades. She met her husband when they were in high school and they married while he was a medical student at the University of Illinois 47 years ago. They have three children including David who lives in Chicago with his wife, Marci, and their sons Daniel and Noah; James who lives in East Lansing; and Karyn who lives with her husband, Michael, in Providence, Rhode Island, with their sons Asher, Simon and Levi.

In addition to her work with the MSMS Alliance, Carol serves on the Sparrow Foundation board and on the advisory council of the Wharton Center for the Performing Arts on the Michigan State University (MSU) campus. She also serves on the executive committee of the Michigan Members of the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Carol is treasurer of the Lester J. Morris Jewish Student Center at MSU and served on the board of her synagogue for 10 years as financial secretary.

In her "spare time," Carol loves visiting with her grandsons, reading and knitting. She treasures time spent with good friends.
