Chicago Tribune, June 23, 2008
New American Medical Association president Nancy Nielsen, MD, vowed at the organization's annual meeting to use "all of the power" of her presidency and the clout of the AMA "to let the nation know that we must cover America's uninsured." Nielsen is only the second woman to become president of the 161-year-old AMA. She also has worked as a medical educator and health insurance executive.
