Why I Give...Patrick Flaharty's Story

When I attended the 50th anniversary of ASOPRS in San Francisco a few years back, it dawned on me that I had been a member of ASOPRS for more than half its existence. Over the years, I have built many great friendships with ASOPRS colleagues and watched the organization grow with the addition of many outstanding new members. As a cosmetically oriented physician, I’ve enjoyed and learned from my colleagues in the other core disciplines, but in the final analysis, I am most closely allied with my ASOPRS colleagues. We have the same core training, come from the same family tree, and need to nurture the continued growth of that tree for the next generation of ASOPRS physicians. Donating to the ASOPRS Foundation is one easy way to give back to the organization that has supported us over all these years and to help strengthen that organization to have an even greater impact on the world in the years to come.
