Dr. Deborah Plate — a family medicine physician, clinical associate director at the Center for Family Medicine at Cleveland Clinic Akron General and a professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine here at NEOMED — will be the speaker at the next meeting of the American Academy of Family Physicians – Family Medicine Interest Group (AAFP-FMIG) from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, in Room Regula Training 106 (across from the Great Hall).
Dr. Plate, perhaps best known for her session titled, “Women and Heart Disease,” presented to M2s in the fall, will present on various topics, including:
- her daily life as a family doctor,
- examples of the diversity of clinical encounters,
- community service opportunities,
- academic involvement,
- caring for the underserved,
- being a public health influence and
- building relationships with patients.
The goal of this event is to provide students and opportunity to connect with an engaging and revered family medicine role model in our community with the hope of inspiring students to consider the field of family medicine.
