ASA Members Receive AMA Foundation Award

Chicago — (March 8, 2010) 

The American Medical Association’s (AMA) Foundation recently honored two ASA members, Brooke Albright, MD and Timothy J. Beacham, MD, for their outstanding leadership in medicine.  The AMA Foundation’s 2010 Leadership Award provides medical students, residents/fellows and early career physicians from around the country with special training to develop their skills as future leaders in organized medicine and community affairs. 

The AMA Foundation honored 30 individuals with the award at its annual Excellence in Medicine Awards ceremony on March 1, 2010 in Washington D.C. The winners are recognized for demonstrating outstanding non-clinical leadership skills in advocacy, community service and education.  Dr. Beacham and Dr. Albright are two of only six residents and fellows in the nation to receive a leadership award. 

Timothy Beacham, MD, is an anesthesiology-trained pain fellow with additional interests in health policy and mentoring youth. He seeks to be instrumental in improving the state of health care for Mississippians.  He currently is a member of Leadership Greater Jackson class of 2009-2010, and the board of trustees - Mississippi State Medical Association, American Society of Anesthesiology, American Society of Regional and Pain Medicine Association in addition to a number of other professional and civic organizations. 

Brooke Albright, MD, is a third-year anesthesia resident looking to pursue a fellowship in critical care and cardiac anesthesiology.  Dr. Albright advocates for improved health care policy for both her patients and colleagues.  As a resident, she has served as her state medical society co-chair, state specialty society president and resident editor of both her state and national specialty society journals.  Aside from medicine, she has co-founded a 501c3 non-profit charity, the Jamison Albright Foundation for Farrier Scholarships, which raises scholarship money for aspiring specialists in equine hoof care.

ASA congratulates Dr. Beacham and Dr. Albright on their achievements.
