CVMS Bulletin


The CVMS Bulletin is the official newsletter of the Coastal Virginia Medical Society.

This will help keep us all up to date on what's happening with healthcare in the local area. Why don't we just get that information from the MSV (Medical Society of Virginia)? Well, the MSV does provide us with important information, but there are issues occurring locally in Virginia Beach and the Tidewater area that will never make it to the MSV or to the state legislature unless the CVMS brings it to them. We all need to know what those issues are so we can discuss them and act on them. This is how we advocate for ourselves collectively. 

Communication is the key to our ability to make changes. If we all fend for ourselves, nothing will happen. If we want to make things better for ourselves and our patients, we must talk to each other.

We will try to let you know what the main issues are in the Bulletin, and from time to time we will ask for a survey or comments to get your opinions on certain things. A comment box will be provided for this at the time. 

Once you sign up for the CVMS Bulletin you will receive a monthly issue by email for as long as you maintain your membership. The newsletter is "free" (covered by your membership dues). You may unsubscribe to the newsletter at any time. It will not affect your membership status.

We hope you will enjoy reading the Bulletin. Let us know if you would like to see any new features added. Send your comments to

Roman Fasces: A symbol of strength and power due to the bundling of many into one united entity.

The Roman Fasces was a symbol of strength and power occurring as a result of many binding together. It was made of multiple elm or birchwood rods about 5 feet long tied together and sometimes including an axe. It was carried by attendants to soldiers or powerful figures in ancient Rome. For us, it symbolizes that we are stronger and more powerful if we bind together in supporting our goals.
