AAFP Board Chair Gary LeRoy, MD, installed the TAFP 2020-2021 officers virtually on October 31, 2020. They are President Amer Shakil, MD; President-elect Mary Nguyen, MD; Treasurer Emily Briggs, MD; and Parliamentarian Terrance Hines, MD.
“As I prepared for my year as TAFP President, I’ve considered many goals and objectives. However, after the COVID-19 pandemic hit I learned about so many family physicians who are either struggling or had to shut down their practices.” Shakil said in his inaugural address. “I think the most important work of my presidency would be to provide support for our members in these unprecedented times.”
