The May ROSE (Renewed Opportunities for Social Engagement) program featured a presentation by Dr. Gary Paddack of Ada Adult Medicine Clinic, the largest internal medicine practice in southeast Oklahoma.

Dr. Paddack, who has practiced medicine in Ada for almost 40 years, spoke to the Sisters Hand-in-Hand ROSE group on a wide variety of health issues and lifestyle practices, including nutrition, exercise, medications and health screenings, all tailored to senior adults. The presentation generated in-depth questions from the ROSE participants, and the post-program reviews were the highest in the two-year history of program.

Along with Dr. Bruce Dennis, Dr. Paddack is a founding member of Ada Adult Medicine Clinic, where both have practiced for more than 15 years. The clinic is located at 721 Better Now Plaza in Ada.

Dr. Paddack is a member of the American College of Physicians, the American Medical Association and the Oklahoma Medical Association. He has served on the board of trustees of the OMA. Dr. Paddack earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado and completed his medical studies at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston.

Dr. Paddack is married to Susan Paddack, who served as the Oklahoma State senator for District 13 from 2004 through 2016.

The June 20 ROSE program will feature a presentation on “Genealogy and the Pontotoc County Historical & Genealogical Society,” by Marian Paniagua, president of the PCHGS.
