NCMS Member Completes Elective with Society To Learn More about Physician Advocacy

Ann Miller Wilson, MD, recently spent time with the NCMS Government Affairs Department completing a one-month elective to learn more about how to help protect physician interests in the state legislature. During this time, Dr. Wilson created several whitepapers pertaining to scope of practice issues currently being discussed at the North Carolina General Assembly. The whitepapers will be available shortly.

Dr. Wilson became interested in physician advocacy when Chip Baggett, NCMS Director of Government Affairs, visited Carolinas Medical Center in an effort to rally support around the monumental tort reform bill. Dr. Wilson is completing her residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Carolinas Medical Center.

Dr. Wilson is a Virginia native who grew up in Richmond, VA. After graduating from high school in 2000, she attended the University of Virginia where she earned a BA in Psychology. Immediately following graduation in 2004, Dr. Wilson worked in the National Preparedness and Response Corps (NPRC) at the American Red Cross and aided in disaster relief efforts nationwide. She also worked in event planning for the Red Cross and created a Girl Scout badge program focusing on disaster preparedness. After her year of work with the NPRC, Dr. Wilson pursued her medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia. There she became a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society. After graduation, she accepted an intern position with the University of Virginia’s Department of General Surgery. Thank you Dr. Wilson for all of your hard work!
