The American Medical Association announced last week that it has hired Aletha Maybank, M.D., M.P.H., as its first ever chief health equity officer. Dr. Maybank was formerly deputy commissioner and founding director of the Center for Heath Equity, part of the New York City Public Health Department.
According to the AMA, "In her new role at the AMA, Dr. Maybank will launch the AMA’s Center for Health Equity which will work to embed health equity across the organization so that health equity becomes part of the practice, process, action, innovation, and organizational performance and outcomes. She will also be tasked with building organizational capacity to elevate the importance of and to sustain the AMA’s health equity efforts."
