Volume 46 Number 18 page 5-5

Rahn Bailey, M.D., an APA fellow, was voted president-elect of the National Medical Association (NMA) at its annual convention and scientific assembly in July. He will be only the third psychiatrist to serve as president of the NMA, which represents more than 30,000 African-American physicians.

Bailey is the chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Meharry Medical College School of Medicine in Nashville. He served as Psychiatry Section Chair of the NMA from 2003 to 2006 and speaker of the NMA House of Delegates from 2009 to 2011. He was the chair for the NMA's Katrina response and led teams of physicians in treating the mental health needs of those displaced by the hurricane. He also worked with the NMA to provide care to Haitians after the 2010 earthquake.

"Dr. Bailey has exhibited tremendous leadership in his roles as a forensic psychiatrist, disaster psychiatrist, medical educator, and administrator," said Annelle Primm, M.D., M.P.H., deputy medical director of APA. "It is exciting to know that Dr. Bailey is joining other psychiatrists elected to key leadership roles in organized medicine." 5_2.inline-graphic-1.gif
