I am humbled to be selected as your President for 2023-2024.
I’d like to extend my gratitude to Erika Saunders, MD for her exceptional leadership. Erika guided this organization through significant change as our much beloved Frances Bell announced her desire to step down. Additionally, Erika led us out of the pandemic shutdowns and back from virtual meetings to live sessions. I am grateful for her consistency in the face of change, her strong leadership, and her mentorship of me. I am honored to call her my friend.
AACDP is uniquely our organization.
