CMU Medical Student Elected to STFM Board

While attending AAFP’s National Conference of Family Medicine Residents & Medical Students, August 25-27, in Kansas City, Missouri, fourth-year Central Michigan University College of Medicine student, Sara Robinson, was elected AAFP student representative on the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Board of Directors.

Sara serves on the MAFP Member Engagement Committee, is active with the LGBTQ Equality in Michigan Special Interest Group, was co-president of CMU’s Family Medicine Interest Group, and has continually participated in Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan’s Future of Family Medicine Conference and AAFP’s National Conference. She is also passionate about helping those less fortunate in her community and is especially interested in matters related to health equity, rural medicine, and public health.

“Each year, MAFP has the privilege to work with many dedicated, service-minded volunteer leaders. Sara stands out not only for her unique talents and contributions, but also for her dedication to, and involvement in, family medicine initiatives at the local, state, and national levels,” said MAFP Chief Executive Officer Karlene Ketola, MSA, CAE.

AAFP is accepting applications until September 5 for several appointed student and resident leadership positions.
