Dr. David Zonies: “How To Avoid Cardiologists”
by Christopher White

You won’t want to miss the February MOAS Luncheon. We have a repeat presentation from Dr. David C. Zonies M.D., FACC. His topic will be "How to Avoid Being a Cardiologists' Patient." Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease, Dr. Zonies is a very informative and entertaining speaker.

A military veteran, Dr. Zonies served as a Major in the US Army from 1967 to1969; Walson Army Hospital, Ft. Dix NJ (1967), and the 50th Medical Clearing Company and the 24th Evacuation Hospital, Long Binh, Vietnam (1968-1969). At that time, the base functioned as a U.S. Army base, a logistics center, and a major command headquarters for United States Army Vietnam (USARV).

Dr. Zonies, brother of MOAS member Bob Zonies, earned his BS at the University of Notre Dame in 1958; his MD from Northwestern University School of Medicine in 1962; followed by Internships and Fellowships in Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Neurology all at The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania from 1962 to 1967. Dr. Zonies was in private practice of Interventional Cardiology (Pacemakers, cardiac catheterizations, stents etc.) from 1969 until his retirement from active practice. He consulted for major legal firms evaluating possible mass tort litigation in the cardiology field until retiring from a special group of Consulting Cardiologists.

Tailgating Theme: President’s Day: Red, White & Blue
Patt & Mike Staley and John & Carol O’Brien, are
planning on good weather and will sponsor a day at the Polo Field at Lakewood Ranch with the theme being “President’s Day: Red, White & Blue.” “Best Burger,” “Best Homemade Dessert,” and “Best All American D├ęcor” will be judged.

The hosts will bring grills with all the necessary
supplies; burgers, all the trimmings, baked beans, potato salad, pasta salad and of course, apple pie with whipped cream. We will have 2 canopies and tables for food, utensils, plates, napkins etc.

We are asking everyone to bring an appetizer or dessert
keeping in mind the patriotic theme. Bring your choice of drink (BYOB), chairs, hats and sunscreen. Red, White and Blue is the uniform of the day.

We suggest you arrive around 11:30 to allow plenty of time for socializing, checking out the horses and partaking in good food and drink. We will be set up with tailgating on the north side of the field, east of the grandstands. Look for a US flag, and our MOAS banner. 

DIRECTIONS: From I-75, exit 213, University Parkway east toward Lakewood Ranch. Go 3.5 miles and turn right onto Lorraine Rd. Enter the second polo field entrance on the right where thy will be collecting money ($12/adult - children <12 are free). CASH ONLY. Parking is on your left. Park anywhere and come join us to the east of the stands. RSVP to John and Carol O’Brien by Feb 8 @ 907-8891 or
