Archives of the AACPDM Village
A project intended to preserve the stories from the past to help share the future of the AACPDM.
In celebration of the AACPDM 75th Anniversary, last year the Academy launched a new video series highlighting those who have made a difference in Academy history: Archives of the AACPDM Village: Past Presidents and Trail Blazers.
This video series now features seven Past Presidents each of whom contributed to building the AACPDM village in unique ways. Through their stories, we are reminded of the many different personalities and characteristics that make up a village and how each contributes to the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary vision of the Academy. These six individuals played an integral role in advocacy, mentorship, cultural expansion, women in leadership, and research excellence.
Each of these Past Presidents learned from each other, grew together, and often developed lasting friendships. Their stories frequently intermingle, and we learn that each cares deeply about this Academy, their fellow members, and the patients and families this Village was built to support.
We hope you enjoy these interviews and if you want to hear the full interview from the AACPDM Archives, please visit the AACPDM YouTube channel, where you can take a stroll or roll with a past president and trailblazer.
