Candidate Statement

It would be a privilege to continue serving the American College of Preventive Medicine as Secretary of the Board of Regents. I have been an active participant in ACPM since joining the College as a new resident in 2005.  I have served on numerous committees (and task forces) including Adolescent Health, Policy and CME/MOC, the last of which I currently chair. I have previously served on the board as the Young Physician Regent and Central/Southwest (now At Large) Regent. 

This is an exciting time with respect to health system transformation and ACPM is well poised to play an influential organizational role. I would appreciate your vote for Secretary of the Board of Regents so I can continue to lend my voice and support to the College in the exciting period ahead.

Candidate Statement

ACPM is uniquely positioned to help lead the health care change revolution that is needed to reverse the chronic disease epidemic, decrease the total cost of health care, and improve satisfaction with the health care system. ACPM's connections to organized medicine and Capitol Hill are extremely valuable. If followed thru appropriately, the recent commitment by ACPM to being on the forefront of establishing the Lifestyle Medicine option for patients, employers and physicians dedicated to achieving the triple aim, can be a game changer. I have been a member, fellow, active committee member and more recently board member of ACPM for almost 30 years. I would love to contiinue to help move ACPM forward as they address the critical role of prevention and lifestyle in both improving our cultures and communities, as well as individual patient care. I also am anxious to support ACPM's goals of seeking change within the health care system, as well as their ongoing commitments to strengthening medical student and resident education in population and preventive medicine.

Candidate Statement

I have been an enthusiastic member and strong advocate of the American College of Preventive Medicine for ten years and have been an ACPM Fellow since 2012. Before entering the field of preventive medicine, I worked in various outpatient settings as a general practitioner in Massachusetts and later in Florida. For the past seven years, after completing the General Preventive Medicine Residency Program at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and then becoming board certified in Preventive Medicine, I have worked for the Virginia Department of Health – first as director of Lord Fairfax Health District (comprised of a small city and five rural Virginia counties) and, since 2010, as the director of the Alexandria Health Department.

 

What I have to offer as an ACPM Regent is the perspective of a former clinician and now a local health department officer. As the director of Alexandria Health Department, I have direct, daily interaction with my community (residents, volunteers and organizations) as well as regional, state and national organizations and agencies – all of whom are working in a myriad of ways to positively affect community health. Regardless of intention or effort, this can either be a mess… or it can be intelligent. I experience first-hand how organizational and system changes, policy development, establishment of cultural norms, and developing and sustaining healthy environments requires leadership, clear thinking, utilization of evidence and alignment with best practices in order to maximize limited resources.

 

ACPM, as our professional, medical society – through its educational opportunities via conferences, review courses, and journal articles; by providing forums to network with other Preventive Medicine specialists; through the development and promulgation of policies and positions statements; and by its history, position, and advocacy for the field of Preventive Medicine – is a critical source of leadership for us. It is my intention, with your support, to strengthen the leadership that ACPM provides to us and, by extension, the organizations, communities and people we serve.

Candidate Statement

I am delighted and honored to have been nominated for consideration as an at-large member of the Board of Regents for ACPM. I have served on a number of boards in my career, but the chance to serve in Preventive Medicine is near and dear to me. I am particularly interested in the possibility of serving as a bridge between Family Medicine and Preventive Medicine in this era of health reform and changing models of health care delivery.

It seems to me that we are in a period of convergence between the goals of primary care and of prevention, and that the opportunity is ripe for innovative health care redesign that serves to improve the health of our patients and communities, helps providers maintain a sense of purpose and meaning in their work, and adds value to what we do. It is that set of possibilities, and the quality and high standards of ACPM as an organization, that make me want to work as a part of leadership in our discipline at this time.

In addition, my prior work with the College in helping to define the nature of the clinical practice of Preventive Medicine, and the licensure challenges we have faced as a discipline (and solutions to those challenges that we have achieved), have given me the opportunity to work with Preventive Medicine colleagues across the country, and with leaders in licensure and organized medicine as we developed strategies and solutions to this issue. This work has led me to seek further involvement in the Board of Regents and leadership for the college.

Nomination to serve on the ACPM Board of Regents is a true honor. I appreciate your consideration of my candidacy, and would look forward to serving the membership as a Regent-at-Large. Thank you for the opportunity to be considered.

Candidate Statement

I believe I have the skills that would complement the composition of the Board and assist in moving ACPM forward as an organization. With regards to my participation in ACPM, I’ve been a member since I completed my General Preventive Medicine residency in 2010. I became a Fellow of the College in 2013. I’ve participated in the Preventive Medicine planning committee since PM2009, including serving as the Population Health Track coordinator in 2013 and Conference Chair in 2014. I’m a mid-career federal officer in the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service, currently serving as the Associate Director for Health Services at the Peace Corps.

 

Throughout my career, I’ve held positions in public health program management and evaluation, with additional duties including policy analysis, international health, public speaking, research, publishing, personnel management, and community relations. I also have experience and skills in organization, advocacy, lobbying, and strategic planning. I have some experience from serving on other boards, but primarily, I feel that I have the ability to provide the skills and experience necessary for the Board to guide and manage ACPM for the next several years.

Candidate Statement

I envision ACPM expanding and providing leadership on the international population health promotion and disease prevention front--through strategic partnership with like-minded entities. The many prevalent health issues we grapple with in America are also faced by other countries.

I have been motivated to work within the College because of its inclusive professional spirit, its distinguished diverse members, and the joy of working with fellow friends, colleagues, and residents. Over the past eight years I have enjoyed growing professionally and personally with ACPM and serving on committees. (Strangely, seemingly mundane chores turn lively when thoughts are bounced around among fellow members). I served two terms as a voting member of the Policy Committee, three years as a scientific reviewer for the Scientific Review Committee, four years on the conference Scientific Program Planning committee, and five years as a member of the Presidents/Leadership Society. I have led the planning for and moderated two programs on the Affordable Care Act (2012, 2013), "Million Hearts" on cardiovascular disease prevention (2013); delivered hands-on lifestyle training for physicians, presented original research papers (2009, 2011); led the session for integrative approach in veterans' care (2015); and spoke on panels about exciting career paths.

I am delighted to be nominated for a Regent-at-Large position on ACPM's Board of Regents. I currently consult in international settings for non-profits organizations, hold an adjunct professorship with a historically black university based in Atlanta, and serve on the Board of Directors for two multinational organizations (based in Silicon Valley and Hong Kong). My main areas of interests: to promote population wellness, prevent aging-associated functional declines in physical, cognitive, and social domains; and to empower historically disadvantaged communities to achieve improved health. If elected, I will assist the College identify strategic partners and business opportunities, support initiatives to increase ACPM international presence, and expand ACPM reach through strategic partnership with like-minded entities.

Dr. Shen is board-certified by the American Board of Preventive Medicine, American Board of Family Medicine, American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine; and certified by the World Health Organization (for medical acupuncture). She graduated from the University of Southern California (B.S. In Neurophysiology, minor in East Asian Languages and Cultures); received two doctorates respectively from USC Keck School of Medicine (M.D.) , UCLA School of Public Health (Ph.D. in Health Systems Management and Policy); and M.P.H. in Health Services. She is a graduate of the CDC Preventive Medicine Program.

Dr. Shen served on the National Committee for Quality Assurance advisory panel for healthcare performance measures; and Board of Directors in North America Public Health Forum. She taught clinical medicine at UCLA; taught integrative medicine in Korea as a faculty member for Harvard Medical International; and taught joint Emory/CDC Executive courses in epidemiology for visiting health officials from China.

Dr. Shen worked for the NIH, FDA, CDC, received over 20 awards for her services to the Federal Government; published as the lead author in JAMA, Medical Affairs, Preventive Medicine, Expert Review in Health Outcomes Research, among other peer-reviewed journals, with research funding from the American Cancer Society, NIH, America Academy of Family Physicians Foundation, and CDC. She served as a volunteer physician in mobile clinics in Maryland, California, and on ship shelter in Mississippi post Hurricane Katrina; and was recognized by California State as a Goodwill Ambassador representing California to Emilia-Romagna.

Candidate Statement

After representing the specialty of preventive medicine and the American College of Preventive Medicine in various roles and leadership positions, I am interested in serving the College as a Regent on the Board. I have been an active and productive member of the College dating back to my years as a resident when I received the ACPM Outstanding Resident Award. My contributions to the College's activities and initiatives has been consistent and significant. I have participated on the Planning Committee for the annual meeting repeatedly, including chairing several meeting committees. In my role as the principal staff support for many prevention projects, including the national Council on Aspirin for Health and Prevention (previously the Aspirin Task Force), I have insured that the individual and organizational expertise of the College was contributory to its many successful projects. Nationally, I have written and spoken on a wide variety of public health and preventive medicine issues wearing both private, public and not-for-profit sector “hats”. My previous leadership position in Partnership for Prevention and current position in a leading biotechnology company are testimony to my dedication and excellence. I think that in every instance and in every position of increasing responsibility, I have represented myself, the specialty, and the College with superior expertise and judgement. I look forward to continuing this on the Board of Regents.
