The Kimballs — Daniel Kimball, Jr., MD, FACP, and his wife C. Eve Kimball, MD, FAAP — are well known to many in the medical community, not only in Berks County but across Pennsylvania.

Twenty-five-year members of the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED), both have been extremely active in various leadership roles, mentoring young physicians in their area, and getting involved in advocacy efforts.

To those who know the Kimballs, it is no surprise that they were recently honored by the Berks County Visiting Nurse Association as the 2014 Health Care Champions.

Over the course of their long careers, the Kimballs have contributed in a wide variety of ways to improving health care in Berks County and beyond. This award is a fitting recognition of the extraordinary level of service that has marked each of their careers.

Dr. Dan Kimball has served in many leadership roles within PAMED, the Berks County Medical Society, and the American Medical Association, including former PAMED Board member and past Berks County Medical Society president just to name a few. He also chaired the Governance Task Force in 2013.

Dr. Eve Kimball has served on PAMED’s Patient Advocacy Executive Council since early 2012 and also has served on several reference committees at PAMED’s annual House of Delegates meeting throughout the years.

Both PAMED and the Berks County Medical Society thank them for their efforts.

“The Kimballs are awesome examples of physician service to country and community,” said PAMED President Bruce MacLeod, MD. “It was my honor to serve on the PAMED Board of Trustees with Dr. Dan. Kimball, which I have learned is but a small part of his portfolio of leadership and service to the medical community,” he said.

“The Kimballs have been outstanding advocates for patients and their families in Berks County, as well as throughout the commonwealth,” said Kristen Sandel, MD, president of the Berks County Medical Society.

“They have been tireless in their efforts to support physicians and the practice of medicine through their leadership roles in a multitude of organizations, including the Berks County Medical Society and the Pennsylvania Medical Society.”
