Secretary- Treasurer of Western American Federation of Medical Research. 2015 - 2018
I am the Secretary- Treasurer for the western section of the American Federation of Medical Research which is one of the few organizations for primarily clinician scientists. As the secretary -treasurer, I have served for the past three years on the Planning Committee of the Western Medical Research Conference, an annual conference held jointly by five medical research societies (Western Section of the American Federation for Medical Research-WAFMR, Western Society for Clinical Investigation- WSCI, Western Association of Physicians- WAP, Western Society for Pediatric Research- WSPR, and the Western Student Medical Research Forum and Residents Forum- WSMRF). These planning meetings are attended by the leadership of each society and I represented the WAFMR as Secretary/Treasurer.
This meeting actively supports the development of clinician scientists with
sponsorship of trainee and junior faculty travel awards which is critical if we are to foster future medical scientists.
