It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Tom Nicholas on July 30, 2018. He was a founder of our Family Medicine Residency Program at TMC Lakewood and a beloved member of our community. As the director of education for the Kansas City Chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians, and later president of AAFP, he was committed to helping spread the word that family doctors were the answer to solving many of the country’s health care problems. He believed a Family Medicine Residency Program at Truman Medical Center – East (now Lakewood) would do the same. Even after retirement he continued to be a mentor and supporter of our program, sharing his valuable knowledge and stories with our students, faculty and staff. He will be missed. We offer our condolences to his family.
