Tulsa Retired Physicians

The Tulsa Retired Physicians, formally the "Golden Oldies" is the organization of Tulsa County Medical Society retired physicians and their spouses. In 1998, Dr. Hall Ketchum & Margaret and Dr. Worth Gross & Charlotte served as The Hosting Committee and initiated two annual events for the group including a summer barbeque and a holiday celebration.

In 2000, Dr. Jerry Gustafson assumed the leadership role for the Tulsa Retired Physicians. In January 2020, Dr. John Minielly will chair the group and engaged Tulsa County Medical Society staff in providing administrative support for the group. The Tulsa Retired Physicians continue to meet several times a year to enjoy social activities and hear updates on projects of the Tulsa County Medical Society and the TCMS Foundation.

The Tulsa Retired Physicians are active volunteers in a variety of organizations in Tulsa. Since 2004, members of the Tulsa Retired Physicians have transported medication from nursing homes that participate in the Tulsa County Drug Recycling Program to the Tulsa County Pharmacy. For up to date numbers on prescriptions and wholesale value see the 2015 Drug Recycling to present and for cumulative numbers see the 2004 start in November to present on the Drug Recycling – Utilization of Unused Prescription Drugs Act page.
