Please join us in congratulating both Alice Chen OMS IV and Tim Lemaire OMS II regarding their recent selections to very prestigious positions.
Alice Chen has recently been selected to serve as the next Student Representative on the AOA Board of Trustees. There is one student and one resident position on the Board. She will be representing all US osteopathic medical students. Her term begins July 2014.

“This is a huge honor! I look forward to accurately and intelligently representing the student voice, especially amidst the current changes that are taking place in our osteopathic profession. While I will be working on multiple fronts, I am most eager to join the discussion on the recent decision to pursue a Unified Accreditation System. In this role, I hope to express all student opinions in the decision making process. For those who have questions and/or concerns, please contact me via email at Thank you!” – Alice Chen

Tim Lemaire, SOMA OMS II student, has recently been selected as First Vice Chair for 2014-2015 for the COSGP.

“I am very excited to be elected. The COSGP (the AACOM Counsel of Osteopathic Student Government Presidents) is made up of a general counsel of the SGA presidents from each school across the country and serves as the officially sanctioned representing voice of all 20,000 osteopathic medical students to AACOM and the AOA. I am honored to be elected elected from a field of exceptionally qualified candidates to the National Executive Board as First Vice Chair for the 2014-2015 term. I will be working closely with Alice Chen, the incoming Student representative to the AOA Board of Trustees on the AOA Counsel of Interns and Residents as well as serving as the student Representative to various Bureaus, Counsels and Committees. I realize that this is an exciting time for our profession and will be reaching out to all of you for feedback and opinions. Thank you for all of your encouragement and trust.”

Again, congratulations to Alice Chen and Tim Lemaire for being selected for these very prestigious positions!
