As you may recall, Wendy Barr, MD, MPH, MSCE was elected to the President-Elect position during our April virtual elections. This left the final year of her two-year Member-at-Large term open.

The board is pleased to announce that Leon McCrea II, MD, MPH, FAAFP, has been appointed to fill this one-year position. Dr. McCrea serves as Program Director at the Family Medicine Residency Program at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA. He also serves as Assistant Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Drexel University College of Medicine.

The new AFMRD Bylaws, approved by the membership in April, allow for the board to appoint an Associate Program Director to serve a one-year term as a non-voting member. We are excited to welcome Katina Rue, DO, FAAFP, FACOFP, as the new Associate Program Director Representative. Dr. Rue is the Associate Program Director – Osteopathic Education at Central Washington Family Medicine Residency in Yakima, WA where she also serves as the Medical Student Director.   

We look forward to working with our new board members. Welcome, Leon and Katina!
