The MMA is represented at the meeting at the Manchester Grand Hyatt hotel in San Diego by state delegates Richard Evans, M.D. and Maroulla Gleaton, M.D.; physiatry representative Kenji Saito, M.D., J.D.; medical students Taylor Ouellette (UNECOM) and Tyler Lang (Tufts Maine Track); and CEO Andrew MacLean, J.D.

During the opening session of the House of Delegates on Saturday, November 16th, long-time Rhode Island Medical Society EVP Newell Warde, Ph.D. received a Medical Executive Lifetime Achievement Award, the highest honor given by the AMA to a medical society staff person. Gordon Smith received this award in 2018.
In addition to policy-making and various educational opportunities involving all of the Maine team, Dr. Evans serves on two important AMA working groups - the Compensation Committee and the Election Reform Task Force. The Election Reform Task Force is looking at ways to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of campaigns for AMA offices. Prescription drug prices and the vaping epidemic are just two of many public policy matters being addressed during the meeting.
The meeting concludes tomorrow.
