Date:5/12/2008

EAST LANSING, Mich., May 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Michael A. Sandler, MD, a West Bloomfield diagnostic radiologist, was installed as president of the 15,000 member Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) during the 143rd annual meeting of the MSMS House of Delegates on May 3 in Dearborn.

A graduate of the Wayne State University School of Medicine, Doctor Sandler is senior staff in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology at Henry Ford Hospital and currently serves on the Michigan Radiological Society board of directors.

During his year as MSMS president, Doctor Sandler will focus on public health issues including smoking cessation, preventive health and school nutrition, among others. Insurance coverage for the uninsured and the pending physician shortage also will be priorities. To address these and other issues, Doctor Sandler plans to encourage physicians and patients to become involved in the political process.

"If we allow our political foundation to crumble, then the blame goes not on the politicians, but on the owners of the system, including you and me," Doctor Sandler noted in his inaugural speech to 350 physicians and guests. "The system works only when we participate, stay organized, support our message, and elect our candidates."

Doctor Sandler is a member of the MSMS Committee on State Legislation and Regulations and serves on the state of Michigan's Certificate of Need Commission. He is a past chair of both the MSMS Board of Directors and the Michigan Doctors' Political Action Committee. He also serves on the Michigan Delegation to the American Medical Association and is a member of the AMA's political action committee board.

Doctor Sandler has been involved in many aspects of the Henry Ford Hospital Diagnostic Radiology Department. He served on the Education/Resident Selection Committee for 15 years and was voted Teacher of the Year. Doctor Sandler initiated a Fellowship in Cross Sectional Imaging in 1984. During his 22 years as its Director, more than 80 fellows completed the program. He also served as vice chair and was twice interim chair of the Radiology Department and is the author or co-author of 60 papers and 22 exhibits. Henry Ford Medical Group recently presented him with a Special Recognition Award and a Distinguished Alumni Award.

Doctor Sandler also has been active within his specialty. He has been the president of the American Society of Clinic Radiologists and the Michigan Radiological Society. Doctor Sandler has been awarded Fellowship in the American College of Radiology, the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, and the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine as well as being an oral examiner in ultrasound for the American Board of Radiology.

The Michigan State Medical Society is the statewide professional association of 15,000 medical doctors in Michigan affiliated with the American Medical Association. Physician policies on various issues involving public health, health care delivery and medical ethics are set at the annual MSMS House of Delegates meeting.
