Recognizing Larry Matheis

by Joshua B. on Friday, October 4, 2013

Guest Blogger: Christopher Roller, Sr. Government Relations Director

This month we are saying congratulations to Lawrence Matheis; long-time Executive Director for the Nevada State Medical Association.  Over the years Larry has been a tremendous partner in helping to advance positive public health and health care policy for so many in Nevada.  A former administrator of the state health division and five-time President  of the Nevada Tobacco Prevention Coalition, Larry’s leadership was key to the success of the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act and the progress that we have made in reducing death and disease due to tobacco use and exposure in our state.  Larry has also been a mentor of mine and a good friend whose wisdom and experience has taught me much.  He will be moving up to Utah with his wife to enjoy retirement in peace and serenity, away from the bright lights and bustle of Las Vegas. Larry, congratulations on all that you have accomplished and on a well deserved retirement!
