Dr. Raymond Truex, Jr. to receive award at House of Delegates

The Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society would like to extend a sincere congratulations to Raymond C. Truex, Jr., MD, FACS, FAANS, who will receive the Pennsylvania Medical Society’s Distinguished Service Award at the House of Delegates on Oct. 26, 2019, at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center.

Dr. Truex is a tireless advocate for physicians in recovery. He has been sober for 32 years and is a champion for those participating in the Physicians’ Health Program.

He has served as a trustee on the board of the Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society since 1999. Dr. Truex retired in 2017 after an impressive career in neurosurgery, and in July of that year, he joined the Physicians’ Health Program as a part-time medical director.

“Dr. Truex embodies the ‘three T’s’ of selflessness – he shares his time, treasure, and talent to create and ensure a healthier physician community across our commonwealth and beyond,” said Heather Wilson, executive director of the Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society and deputy EVP for PAMED.

The Foundation looks forward to honoring Dr. Truex on Oct. 26.
