Q: What attributes will you seek in our future Academy leaders? What experience do you have that will aid in selecting leaders that will advance the mission of the Academy?

Angela M. Powell, MD

I will advocate for leaders with diverse backgrounds and experiences, knowledgeable in healthcare policy, facile in negotiation with insurers and managed care organizations, globally minded embracing our international colleagues and their contributions to the specialty, and forward-thinking in their approach to educating the next generation of otolaryngologists.

Here are a few highlights from my career in the areas of professional and public education, research, and health policy advocacy in keeping with the Academy’s mission. While teaching faculty at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, I worked to enhance the residents’ educational program and received the Program Director’s Award for outstanding service and the Teacher of the Year Award. While a University of Pittsburgh resident, I received an AAO-HNS/F research grant and the Medtronic Xomed Award for excellence in clinical research. I have lobbied on Capitol Hill with Academy leadership and currently serve as a legislative representative to the Board of Governors for the Harry Barnes Society and as the member-at-large for the Women in Otolaryngology Section.
