In recent years APA’s delegation to the AMA has become among the most influential in the House of Medicine. At the annual meeting of the House of Delegates in June, psychiatrist Jeremy Lazarus, M.D., who is speaker of the house, was elected president-elect of the AMA and will assume the presidency in June 2012. Additionally, Patrice Harris, M.D., was elected to the Board of Trustees, and Stuart Gitlow, M.D., won re-election to the Council on Science and Public Health.
