He is also a member of the ASA House of Delegates and an alternate director for the Board of Directors.
In Texas, ASA member Anna Allred, M.D., ran a strong, well-executed. yet unsuccessful, campaign for Texas State House Representative in District 28 in a special election to replace ASA member John Zerwas, M.D., who stepped down from the position in September.
