BAILEY REELECTED; HYER HITS HIGH NOTES; STUDENTS WIN AMA POSTS; ANNIS RUNS TUESDAY
Sue Bailey, MD, the former TMA president from Fort Worth, won a third term as vice speaker of the American Medical Association House of Delegates by acclamation. Outgoing AMA Alliance President Pat Hyer of Fort Worth told the house of the huge improvements that organization has made in the past year. Three Texas medical students won positions on the Region 3 board for the AMA Medical Student Section. Kaitlin Janning, the new Region 3 secretary, and Elizabeth Coffee, the membership chair, are both students at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine. Divya Chhabra, the new community service chair, attends The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. All three are rising second-year students. And we’ll know the outcome of the race by Joe Annis, MD, for AMA president by this time tomorrow. He did an excellent job in Saturday’s debate.
