Biagioli inaugurated OMA president
Frances Biagioli, MD, associate professor of family medicine, was installed as the 139th president of the Oregon Medical Association (OMA) during the association's annual meeting on April 20.
Biagioli has been active with OMA since 1995. She joined the OMA's House of Delegates in 1998. She has served the OMA in several roles, including membership on the Community Health Committee for 14 years, the OMA Technology Committee for three years and served as the vice-speaker of the OMA House of Delegates. She was elected vice president in 2011 and president-elect in 2012.
Biagioli said her goal is to encourage OMA members to be more vocal about their concerns, ideas and issues.
"The OMA's mission is to improve the health of Oregonians through serving and supporting its physicians," Biagioli said in her inaugural address. "To do this, the OMA needs the voices of those in the trenches. If you have issues you would like the OMA to address, pop me an email and be heard."
Biagioli is OHSU Family Medicine course director of the Principles of Clinical Medicine Preceptorship, associate director of medical student education and a physician at Family Medicine at Gabriel Park.
The OMA has more than 8,000 physicians, physician assistants and medical and physician assistant students organized to serve and support physicians in their efforts to improve the health of Oregonians.
