Golden Arrow District leadership is looking to establish a new Medical Post at Plano Presby (Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano just east of DNT on Parker). We are looking to fill two roles: an Advisor and a Committee Chair. The hospital has already agreed to be the Chartered Organization. Plano Presby is willing to handle all of the program, but they just want a couple of people to handle the normal operation and coordination of the unit.
