MELINDA L. YOUNG, MD, DLFAPA CANDIDATE, 2019 AREA 6 (CALIFORNIA) TRUSTEE AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION
Being an effective Area 6 Trustee is like being a good cook - it takes more than following a recipe.
I know what members want and need from their membership in the APA.
From long experience - with District Branches, State Associations, and the APA itself - I know how to get it done, either through existing channels or, when necessary, by effectively challenging the system.
I am a tireless advocate for members. I'm not afraid of taking a controversial stand in my advocacy for members.
