School: St. George’s University School of Medicine
Stacia is a second-year medical student at St. George’s University School of Medicine. She recently began pursuing a Master of Science in Law at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.

Delegate to AMA Medical Student Section
School: Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine
Connor is a third-year medical student at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, Oregon. He is originally from Boise, Idaho, and he earned his B.S. in Music Technology from the University of Oregon. He became interested in anesthesia through experiences with both surgery and internal medicine, in which he realized he wanted aspects of both in his career and thought that anesthesia was a great middle ground in between operative and medical treatment. He realized early on that anesthesiology is a unique, invaluable specialty that must be protected, and he looks forward to advocating for the specialty in his time on the governing council. In his spare time, he enjoys writing and playing music, running and skiing.
Alternate Delegate to AMA Medical Student Section
Vy Phuong Le
School: Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine
Vy Le is currently a third-year medical student at the Oregon Health & Science University. She was born in Vietnam and immigrated to the States with her family when she was 12. Vy received her bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from Stanford University, and is passionate about integrating the humanities in her current and future medical training. As the first in her extended family to be in medicine, Vy began medical school knowing very little about the different medical fields. She was however fortunate to explore and fell in love with anesthesia through the guidance of mentors and helpful resources like those of ASA. Vy wants all her student colleagues to have that same opportunity. In her role as the alternate delegate to the AMA, Vy will work to ensure that ASA and AMA resources are accessible not only to students already interested in anesthesia, but also those who are not so familiar with the specialty. She looks forward to a great year of listening, supporting, and representing all her fellow student members!
