About the SPEAKER:
Joseph Ray, MD, New England Regional Flight Surgeon.  Dr. Ray finished medical school on a United States Air Force Health Professions Scholarship program and then practiced at Tyndall AFB in Panama City, Fla., on active duty. Following a lengthy period in private practice, he became an aviation medical examiner in the New England area in 2007. He joined the New England Region as the Deputy Regional Flight Surgeon in 2009 and is residency trained in Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine.


Most aircraft (especially larger/production) will need to park on the North Ramp (large parking area next to Echo).  A few small planes can park near or in front of the chapter classroom. (The EAA106 classroom is inside the last white hangar on the left at the north end of Delta).  
Turn onto Holt Rd off Rt-125 in No. Andover (about 1 mile north of where Rt-133 turns East). At the end of Holt Rd, turn right (Clark St).  GATE 4 will be on the left. We will have a cell phone # sheet on the yellow post to call for someone to drive down and escort you in. Please arrive before the 7 pm start of the program so our volunteers don’t have to miss any of the program. Thank you.
