Medicine and The Media – Leadership in Historic Times

Dr. Susan R. Bailey, M.D.

President of the American Medical Association (AMA)

As the recently sworn in President of the American Medical Association, Dr. Bailey becomes the third consecutive woman to lead the nation’s largest physician group in its history. Founded in 1847, the AMA is the largest association of physicians and medical students in the country.

As we seek answers and trusted information about COVID-19, the session will be an opportunity to hear Dr. Bailey discuss the partnership between the medical community and media. What have we learned about this evolving relationship during these extraordinary times? What can media outlets do to support physicians and the stories being told?

As a practicing physician with a specialty in immunology, Dr. Bailey will provide insight into how to manage medical concerns in our own lives, careers and families during these extraordinary times.

Dr. Bailey will also discuss ways in which physicians and other front line heroes confront their difficult jobs and what we can learn from their heroism, determination and perseverance.
