Texas well represented at NCCL
AAFP held its national Conference of Constituency Leaders in Kansas City, Missouri in late April and 19 TAFP members represented Texas, including three resident members and nine first-time attendees.
Christina Kelly, MD, of Harker Heights, presided over NCCL as convener of the 25th anniversary conference, which had record registration. First-time attendee Ikemefuna Okwuwa, MD, of Odessa, was elected as an international medical graduate co-convener for 2016, as well as a member constituency alternate delegate to the AAFP Congress of Delegates. Marie-Elizabeth Ramas, MD, of Mount Shasta, Calif. , was chosen as the AAFP Board of Directors new physician candidate, to be approved by the 2015 Congress of Delegates in Denver this fall. Ramas completed her residency in Texas and previously received the TAFP Foundation James C. Martin, MD, Scholarship which allowed her to work on TAFP’s scope of practice policy brief in 2011.
Congratulations to them and thank you to all TAFP members who traveled to Kansas City to represent Texas.
