AMA Foundation Board—student member

The philanthropic arm of the AMA includes a medical student representative


The AMA Foundation (AMAF) is the philanthropic arm of the AMA. The AMAF Board of Directors is composed of at least 13 and no more than 20 members, including a medical student representative.
