Dr. Sue Rudd Bailey '78 became president-elect of the American Medical Association at its annual meeting earlier this month.
The Fort Worth-based allergist and immunologist was named a Distinguished Alumnus in 2016, and was a member of the College of Medicine's inaugural class. She will serve as president-elect for one year, then assume the office of AMA president.
“It is a deep honor and privilege to be named president-elect of an organization that is committed to helping the medical profession and the patients we serve,” Bailey said during her acceptance speech. “Challenging times remain for the health care system and as AMA president-elect, I pledge to serve as a strong voice and dedicated advocate--for patients and physicians--on the pressing health care issues confronting our nation.”
The first female former student to become a regent for The Texas A&M University System, she served on the Board of Regents from 1999 to 2005. She has served on the Board of Directors of The Association of Former Students and supported the enhancement of the Clayton W. Williams Jr., Alumni Center.
Bailey has been a Muster speaker on numerous occasions, including for the Kentuckiana A&M Club, Central Arkansas A&M Club, Bell County A&M Club, Rockwall County A&M Club, Parker County A&M Club and Ellis A&M Club. She is a Diamond level member of The Association’s Century Club, with more than 30 years of giving.
