Here we are again at the start of another New Year.
We continue our historical summary of past AMA Presidents from current SED States. The pictures and vignettes, from the AMA archives and Karen Foy’s research, are a fascinating look both into our AMA past and into the changes in the faces of American Medicine.
We appreciate our current richness of diversity in AMA membership and leadership. The current succession of female Presidents would have been unheard of in these historical eras.
We continue the COVID-19 resource links and the Beyond the Stethoscope column. Remember, we solicit column contributions from all of you.
We include a special link to the noteworthy and nationally recognized charity of SED Board member Dr. Omar Atiq of Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
Have a better 2021. We must expect to see each other again in November.
