A new weekly online series from the AMA—"Did You Know?"—shares selected facts showing how the AMA has improved the nation's health care system for America's physicians and patients throughout the last 165 years.

Since its founding in 1847, the AMA has been dedicated to its mission of promoting the art and science of medicine and the betterment of public health. This series will consist of highlights from the AMA's rich history in an effort to illustrate the various ways the AMA continues to fulfill that mission.

Each weekly fact will be featured online and will appear in AMA Wire—both in the emailed newsletter, just below This Week's News, and on this Web page, on the right-hand side just below "On the Road with Dr. Lazarus."
