AMA Honors U.S. Delegate Donna Christensen, M.D. With Top Government Service Award
Date:3/2/2010

WASHINGTON, March 2  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congresswoman Donna Christensen M.D. (D-VI), the only female physician in the U.S. House of Representatives, is honored tonight with the American Medical Association's (AMA) top government service award for an elected official. She will be presented with the award by chief medical editor for NBC News, Nancy Snyderman, M.D., at an awards dinner tonight in Washington, D.C. as part of the AMA's National Advocacy Conference.

"As both a physician and delegate to Congress, Dr. Christensen has dedicated her life's work to advancing public health," said AMA Board Chair Rebecca J. Patchin, M.D.  "She currently chairs the Congressional Black Caucus Health Braintrust and sits on the Committee on Energy and Commerce's Health Subcommittee.  Through her myriad legislative efforts, Congresswoman Christensen is recognized as a leading voice in working to ensure parity for the Americans in the U.S. Territories and to address the social determinants of health that not only cause and sustain, but that exacerbate the health inequities that disproportionately and detrimentally affect our nation's most vulnerable individuals and communities."
