The 175th president of the American Medical Association (AMA), Dr Susan Bailey, was sworn in remotely during a virtual Special Meeting of the AMA House of Delegates on 7 June.

An allergist in private practice, for more than three decades she has been with Fort Worth Allergy and Asthma Associates. Dr Bailey has been active in the AMA since medical school when she served as chair of the AMA Medical Student Section. She was first elected to the AMA Board of Trustees in 2011 and over the years has held numerous leadership positions at the AMA. She was elected president-elect of the American Medical Association in June 2019.


“After more than 30 years in a small, private practice, I am a passionate defender of the independent physician, and, like the AMA, I’m determined to remove all those obstacles that have come between us and our patients,” Dr Bailey said in her inaugural statement.


Prior to engaging with AMA, Dr Bailey worked in various organisations including the Texas Medical Association, Tarrant County Medical Society, Texas Medical Association House of Delegates and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology House of Delegates.


Dr Bailey is an honour graduate of Texas A&M University College of Medicine. She completed her residency in general pediatrics and a fellowship in allergy/immunology at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine and is certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. She is a distinguished fellow of the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology and serves on the board of directors of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education.


Highlighting the obstacles that physicians are now facing in her address, Dr Bailey stressed those were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. “We need the power of the AMA on this journey. I believe involvement in organised medicine is a professional obligation, taking good care of our patients requires much more from us than the time we spend with them in an exam room,” she said concluding with a message of hope that with joint effort the pandemic would be defeated.

I just got my ex husband back through the help of Dr Nkosi love spells Experts. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr nkosi, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr nkosi. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Nkosi for help now..Here his contact, WhatsApp him: +27820502562 {or} Email him at: [email protected] ,his website: www.fastsolutiontemple.com
