Dr. Woods announces his retirement as NHMS delegate to the AMA

At the interim meeting of the American Medical Association on Saturday, November 16, 2013, Gary Woods, MD announced his retirement from his position as N.H.’s AMA delegate.  Dr. Woods’ contribution to the AMA on behalf of N.H.’s physician community spans more than two decades and has encompassed literally thousands of hours of volunteer work on your behalf.

Dr. Woods was first named as the N.H. delegate to the AMA in 1995, several years after his initial involvement with the organization.  His election to the Council on Science and Public Health (two terms) was just one of the many accomplishments that elevated his stature and contribution to organized medicine on the national level.  He was also instrumental in developing a functional framework within the New England delegation to the AMA, which allows our regional voice to function more efficiently and powerfully within the AMA.

Dr. Woods’ longtime AMA colleague and friend Georgia Tuttle, MD wrote a very fitting and heartfelt poem to commemorate Dr. Woods’ AMA journey over the past two decades.

Please join Dr. Tuttle along with incoming AMA delegate William Kassler, MD, MPH and incoming AMA alternate delegate Cindy Cooper, MD in thanking Dr. Woods for his years of hard work, leadership and advocacy for N.H.’s physician community on the national stage.
