Medical Alliance


Fort Wayne Medical Society – Alliance


Fort Wayne Medical Society – Alliance

Betty Canavati, Co-President

The FWMS Alliance has had a fantastic autumn with many social and educational events.

The Annual Legislative Workshop, which was co-sponsored by the FWMS and Alliance, was held on October 10th at Sycamore Hills Country Club. During the evening, attendees heard from nine state legislators about issues that they deem important. Physicians, spouses, residents and medical students were all given the opportunity to discuss with their local state legislators, issues and problems affecting their medical practices and give their input on proposed solutions.

The Alliance assisted the IU School of Medicine-FW with their 3rd Annual Trunk or Treat evening on Monday Oct. 29th in the parking garage across from the medical school. Admission fee and/or canned food items were collected for the Community Harvest Food Bank. Medical School Liaison, Dawn Davis, and several Alliance members participated in making this a very successful evening for more than 100 children. The FWMS donated funds to help underwrite the cost of the event.

Social Program Chair, Cammy Sutter, and her committee have done a great job of adding variety to Alliance member activities. In addition to monthly events, such as First Friday Fun, and knitting/book club meetings, Cammy planned the first Lunch & Learn luncheon on Oct. 24th at Baker Street restaurant. The topic was Fraud Prevention, which was presented by Detective Chrystopher O’Connor of the FWPD.

If you are new to Fort Wayne, or if you have lived here for years but have not attended one of our events, let me encourage you to come out and enjoy one of our programs. We love new faces and look forward to spending time with other spouses who want to make Fort Wayne the best place to live and practice medicine.

The FWMS Alliance is so thankful to each of our members who are willing to take the time and serve our community bringing together ‘spouses who care, with programs that matter’.

Please visit our website at for any questions or comments or Facebook ‘Fort Wayne Medical Society Alliance’.

The Membership Committee, co-chaired by Betty Canavati, Vivian Tran, and Preeti Jain, are still busy encouraging physician spouses to support the Alliance. We are the face of the medical society and want to contribute to the well-being of people in Fort Wayne.

The Alliance Holiday Lunch and Bazaar Fundraiser was held on December 5th at Ceruti’s Banquet & Event Center. This event is a holiday highlight for our members, their friends and families. There were more than  90 people participating in the luncheon and “Feed the Reindeer” gift baskets. This well-attended, fun event offered a chance for our members to celebrate the Holiday Season with friends and guests, while providing the opportunity to shop with more than 15 local vendors. All vendors graciously agreed to donate at least 10% of their sales back to the Alliance. Friends who could not stay for lunch were welcome to come shop before or after the luncheon portion of the event.
