In brief

McKenna joins SharedClarity

FLINT — SharedClarity, a joint effort by health care organizations to conduct independent studies to determine the most effective medical devices, has added Dr. Michael McKenna to its board of managers.

Dr. McKenna, Chief Medical Officer of McLaren Health Care, has more than 20 years of medical management experience and will play a major role with SharedClarity. The Phoenix-based company conducts independent studies and reviews medical data in order to improve patient outcomes and reduce the cost for its members and customers. SharedClarity will review 30 categories of medical devices, including hip and knee replacements, pacemakers, defibrillators and many others.

SharedClarity has already completed reviews and awarded contracts for bare metal and drug-eluting stents, with member health care systems reporting significant double-digit savings during the first three months. — G.G.

Charity Golf Outing for Flint Junior Golf Association

FLINT — The King Par Classic golf outing will be held June 23 at the Flint Golf Club. The Classic is one of Genesee County’s premier charity golf events benefiting the Flint Junior Golf Association. This will be the fourth year King Par has hosted the event to benefit local charities in the community.

Last year over 800 children and young adults were able to participate in the FJGA.

“We believe GOLF stands for Great Opportunities Lifetime Friendships”, said Loyd Walter of the Flint Junior Golf Association. Some of the benefits received through the King Par Classic include funding the scholarship programs, expanding teaching clinics, allowing us to keep fees for the kids to a minimum and many other great benefits. We don’t turn kids away. If they want to play, we find a way to make it possible”, continues Walter.

There are still opportunities to sponsor events including hole sponsorships for the King Par Classic to benefit the FJGA. Teams are still welcome to sign up through June 20 for the handicapped Pro-Am scramble event starting at Noon. Teams participating in this event will be paired with a PGA Pro for their fifth team member.
