UAFP 2023 Elections for Board of Directors and Bylaw Updates

icon

This year's UAFP elections include voting for a new president-elect, current at-large board members running for an additional three-year term, and updated UAFP bylaws.


 

Voting will begin on June 1, 2023 at 8:00am MDT and remain open for fifteen days, closing on June 15, 2023 at 11:59pm MDT.

There are no board vacancies for at-large board members during this election cycle, so the only voting will be a "yes" or "no" vote for the candidate running for president-elect, Dr. Tiffany Ho, and for the current at-large board members running for an additional term: Dr. Marlin Christianson, Dr. Tiffany Ho, Dr. David Miner, and Dr. Kirsten Stoesser.

The UAFP Board of Directors is also proposing some changes and updates to the current bylaws that help govern the organization. We ask that eligible voting members review these proposed changes available from the link below and then vote to either accept the changes or reject them (which equates to a vote of keeping the bylaws as they are currently written). If you have any questions or concerns about these changes, please contact Maryann Martindale. 

CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT-ELECT

Tiffany Ho

Tiffany Ho, MD, MPH, FAAFP

Tiffany Ho, MD, MPH, FAAFP is a board-certified family physician who received her medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

She is also the Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Domain Expert for the Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine.
Dr. Ho continues to practice full-spectrum family medicine (inpatient, outpatient and obstetrics). Her mentors modeled the broad scope family medicine can provide and she hopes to empower family medicine residents to do the same. She has a special interest in reproductive health, prenatal care, mental health and LGBTQ+ care. Furthermore, she strives to create safe space for people of all communities to feel welcome. This extends to patients, students, residents, colleagues, friends and family.
Dr. Ho is interested in serving as the President-Elect for Utah Academy of Family Physicians because she is passionate about building a strong future for primary care, specifically family medicine.
