Dr. Cecil Wilson, president-elect of the American Medical Association, will participate in the College of Medicine general faculty meeting at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 11, in Room C1-11 on the Gainesville campus, with simulcast videoconferencing to the Jacksonville campus, according to Dr. Michael Good, interim dean.

The AMA is actively engaged in the health-care reform debates currently taking place in Washington, D.C., and around the country. Dr. Wilson is in a unique position to discuss “The Future of Health System Reform” with UF COM faculty, Good said.

Dr. David Guzick, the senior vice president for health affairs and president of the UF&Shands Health System will also be on hand.

“With health-care reform so prominent in our discussions locally and nationally, I believe these two speakers will make for a very informative hour,” Good said.
