Reform remains key issue in contest for AMA president
Modern Physician

The last time the American Medical Association had a contested election over who would be its next president was three years ago. And, just like in 2010, the candidates were asked about the AMA support of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

Seeking to be the next president-elect of the nation’s oldest and still largest physician organization are two members of the AMA Board of Trustees: Dr. Joseph Annis, an Austin, Texas-based anesthesiologist and an adjunct professor with the Dartmouth College Geisel School Of Medicine, Hanover, N.H.; and Dr. Robert Wah, a reproductive endocrinologist and obstetrician-gynecologist practicing and teaching at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
