Plenty pop in to DCMH event

(Continued)

Attracting those doctors, McDowell said, was goal number two among organizers.

“It’s really tricky to get doctors to attend an event like this,” she said. “They’re so busy and are juggling about a million different things, getting them to be here is a significant accomplishment in itself.

Perry, of course, specializes in women’s health, while the other three doctors in attendance, along with Rayles and Struewing, McDowell explained, have all completed specialized training in women’s health issues.

With the exception of Perry, McDowell further noted, Monday’s other doctors (including Rayles) don’t focus exclusively on female patients, but see other types too. Still, McDowell wants Greensburg and Decatur County women to know they have the option of seeing these doctors.

The advantage to using the more-generally focused Boersma, Fletcher, McCullough, Rayles and Struewing lies in the fact that, in regards to the care of female patients, they all work closely with Perry. That allows for highly-personalized care without patients necessarily being required to seek treatment beyond DCMH, McDowell explained.

McDowell was most impressed with the interaction between physicians and community members at the event, which meant goal number three – the event’s most crucial – was a resounding success.

“We staged this event for that interaction,” McDowell explained. “We want Decatur Countians to know what we have to offer. We want them to understand that they can get specialized care right here at home, without needing to drive to Indianapolis or some other larger community. We want them to be aware of the resources that are available right here in Decatur County.”
