Former APA President and Assembly Speaker John McIntyre, M.D., won election to a second term on the AMA's influential Council on Medical Service. That council develops and forwards to AMA's policymaking House of Delegates socioeconomic-related policies, such as those involving health care reform and access-to-care issues, that impact the practice of medicine.
