DR. DICKEY STEPS DOWN AT TEXAS A&M
After 11 years in the corner office, Nancy Dickey, MD, resigned as president of the Texas A&M Health Science Center. “This is an opportunity for me to return to my passion regarding health policy, health care delivery solutions, medical ethics, and professionalism — and the importance of these topics in the education of health professionals,” Dr. Dickey said in a statement. She has been a staunch ally of TMA and Texas physicians throughout her career, including her term as the first female president of the American Medical Association. She was a tremendous strategic leader and visionary — the kind of person medicine really needs. We wish her the best. E.J. “Jere” Pederson, former executive vice president and chief operating officer of The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, will serve as acting head of the Texas A&M Health Science Center.
