June 15, 2020
In her remarks during the May 2018 Baltimore City Medical Society (BCMS) President’s Gala, Padmini Ranasinghe, M.D., quoted a well-known ancient Buddhist saying: “Arogya Parama Labha.” “Translated, this means that the ultimate profit, or gain, that anyone can make is in one’s own health and wellness”, she stated.
As President-Elect, Dr. Ranasinghe led a series of wellness initiatives, that included establishment of an Wellness Advisory Committee to provide guidance on programming and several continuing medical education activities. “The goal of our efforts is to reach out to physicians at every stage of their career, and our collective vision [is] that physicians who invest in their own wellness will become the true healers for everyone in their community”, Dr. Ranasinghe added. BCMS Foundation, established in 1972 by BCMS physicians, shares that vision, and is using its Speakers Bureau to expand its reach to City residents on topics of well-being.
