Dr. Daniel Dickerson has resigned from Eudora Family Care effective at the end of 2014.  According to Belinda Rehmer, a spokesperson for Lawrence Memorial Hospital which owns Eudora Family Care, Dickerson will be leaving to do research.  There was no word on where or what type of research he will be doing.

Rehmer stated that Dr. Joe Hawkins will be joining the practice as a replacement to Dickerson, but as of this time, a start date for Hawkins has not been determined.  Rehmer said that, depending on when Hawkins’ starts, Dr. Elizabeth Stamper or a physician from the LMH system will likely fill in serving Dickerson’s patients during any interim period.

“LMH cares a lot about the Eudora community and has invested a lot in the Eudora community,” Rehmer said. “We intend to continue to provide excellent healthcare in the Eudora community.”

Dickerson declined to be interviewed for this story, but it is believed that Dickerson will continue his role on the Eudora School Board.  Dickerson has been in Eudora since 2001.



We have many great sponsors of this website who keep this site running.  Many have been with us for a long time and we thank all of them.

We have had several fine folks join our family of advertisers of late and we wanted to call out some attention to them.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital has come on board with several new programs to help you lead a better and healthier lifestyle.

LMH is offering heart risk assessments to help reduce your risk for heart attacks and other heart related problems.  You can find out more information by clicking on the link to heart risk assessment page LMH Heart Risk Assessments.

Also, LMH has gained recognition lately for their treatments and studies in various cancer related diseases.  If you would like to find out more about their Oncology studies you can click on the following link: LMH Oncology Studies.

Besides the great folks at LMH, which own and operate Eudora Family Care, we have another great partner to welcome to the family of advertisers.

Gene’s Heartland Foods at 14th and Church Streets has seen the power of eudorareporter.com advertising. You will now be able to see, with one simple click on their Eudorareporter.com advertisement, the WEEKLY ADVERTISEMENT  for Gene’s and all the specials they have for that week.  You no longer have to wait for the mail to come or pick up a copy of the Lawrence newspaper just to see the ad. Through our partnership with Gene’s, you will also see various special promotions that they are planning in the future.

Gene’s Heartland Foods, which operates ten other stores in the state of Kansas with an additional store in Nebraska, has made a large commitment to our community and made significant  improvements to the store in Eudora. The entire organization from local managers Lance and Craig to the president of the company want to serve you for all your grocery and household needs. From personal experience, we have noticed a greatly improved meat counter, produce and dairy dairy departments and the prices are competitive with what you can find in Lawrence.  You no longer need to drive to Lawrence to find affordable groceries.

Finally, another new sponsor is DCCCA, Inc. which is a Douglas County organization that is a provider of quality education, prevention and treatment services for individuals and families across the State of Kansas.  For over thirty years, DCCCA has provided a variety of human services and played an active role in helping clients improve their quality of life.

Currently they are partnering with several state and county organizations to help families with the problems of underage drinking.  If you would like more information on how to help your kids overcome the dangers of underage drinking, you can go to teenthinking.org.  There are multiple resources for parents, communities and kids at the site.

While these are our newest sponsors who we greatly welcome, make sure to visit all of our sponsors and tell them you saw their ad on Eudorareporter.com.  Each one of our great advertisers has committed to making the  Eudorareporter.com site available to you.  Make sure that you appreciate their support.
