APA members Jeremy Lazarus, M.D., and Carolyn Robinowitz, M.D., have been reelected to positions they hold at the AMA.

Lazarus, a former speaker of APA's Assembly, was reelected the vice speaker of the House of Delegates. He also serves as chair of the AMA Board Task Force on Medicare/Health System Reform and is a member of the Board Audit and Organization and Operations committees.

Robinowitz, APA's secretary-treasurer, was elected to another term on the AMA's prestigious Council on Scientific Affairs (now to be called the Council on Science and Public Health). The council reports on medical, scientific, and public health issues that affect the practice of medicine, the quality of patient care, and the translation of scientific research into patient treatment. At last month's meeting, the AMA adopted a critical council report on the use of SSRIs in children and adolescents (see story on page 1).
