2020 Chapter Excellence Award
We are pleased to announce that our chapter is in receipt of the Gold Level of the 2020 Chapter Excellence Award! The award recognizes truly extraordinary chapters that surpass excellence in chapter management. We are in the company of 32 other outstanding chapters. In order to achieve the Gold Level of the Chapter Excellence Award, chapters must meet twenty-one Bronze criteria, fifteen Silver criteria and multiple Gold level activities. Criteria include such activities as having a legislative action plan or agenda, holding a volunteerism/community service activity, holding multiple stand-alone meetings, having revenue sources outside of dues and meeting registration fees, implementing a strategic plan, implementing a formal recruitment and retention plan and measuring outcomes, conducting various activities for Medical Students, Residents and Early Career Physicians. I would like to extend a special thanks to those chapter members who assisted us in all of these endeavors! For their hard work and dedication, we received this award.
Charlton Wilson, M.D. has been named to the prestigious 2021-22 Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellowship. The fellows were selected for their accomplishments in health and behavioral/social science through a national competition for health professionals with an interest in policy. Their experiences in Washington will position them to examine how federal and state governments relate to the mission of their home institutions and local communities, and will enrich their understanding of the federal policy formation process. After an intensive three-month orientation, the fellows will then participate in a nine-month assignment in a congressional office or the executive branch, where they will be involved in health-related legislation and policy development. After their time in Washington, the fellows will continue to develop as health policy leaders and will receive support in order to assist in providing expert perspectives for informed health policy.
