Medical Society of Delaware recently elected a sports medicine physician as its 176th president, naming Dr. Joseph Straight of First State Orthopedics to the post.

In this week’s Enlighten Me, Delaware Public Media’s Nick Ciolino speaks with Straight about a host of health and medical issues affecting the lives of Delawareans as he prepares to take over at the start of the new year.

Dr. Straight is a Delaware native, a UD grad and completed his residency at ChristianaCare.

He has been involved with medical society for years, serving as chair of the Delaware Medical Political Action Committee (DELPAC), as vice president of the Government Affairs Committee and as a member of the School Health Subcommittee.
