CHICAGO, June 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Medical Association (AMA) announced today the election of practicing Oklahoma neonatal-perinatal medicine specialist, Mary Anne McCaffree, M.D., to the AMA Board of Trustees. In this position, Dr. McCaffree plans to help lead the transformation of health care to ensure that all patients have access to quality health care.

She also was awarded the OSMA Woman in Medicine Award and the Abraham Jacobi, M.D., Award, presented to a physician who has successfully served the AMA and the AAP at the highest levels.

Dr. McCaffree is a professor of pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, Okla., and is recognized as an experienced researcher and leader. She is committed to ensuring that all patients receive quality health care and previously led the state of Oklahoma to expand care for sick newborns, working within the medical community groups to implement changes to improve care for infants and children.
