For those of you who couldn’t make it to the 2022 AAHM Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY last weekend, we are delighted to relay the news that our own Dr. Mary Fissell has just been been elected to the leadership of the American Association for the History of Medicine—to a roomful of acclaim and applause! This is no small honor and no small task: for the next six years Mary will serve first as Vice President, then as President, and then as Past President.

Please join us in congratulating Mary on this well-deserved recognition of her scholarship, mentoring, vision, and leadership in the field of the history of medicine!
