"Ms. James has worked selflessly on the connection between health and family violence for many years, and we're delighted to honor her with the Citation for Distinguished Service," said AMA President J.

Ms. James, of Berkeley, California, has developed educational materials for health care professionals on domestic violence and is the editor of four Family Violence Prevention Fund manuals. She has collaborated with health care professionals, domestic violence experts and health policy makers in 15 states to develop statewide health care responses to domestic violence, and coordinates the biennial National Conference on Health Care and Domestic Violence and the US Department of Health and Human Services designated National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence.

Ms. James was a steering committee member of the AMA's national Advisory Council on Violence and Abuse and a board member of the Academy of Violence and Abuse. Prior to joining the Family Violence Prevention Fund, she worked in the Czech Republic to develop educational and public health programs for Czech and Slovak students. She has a Master's degree in Women's Studies and social policy from the University College Dublin, Ireland and a Bachelor's degree in Humanities from San Francisco State University, California.
