NAM was honored to have the largest delegation at the 2019 TMA House of Delegates on May 18. Members -- including medical students, residents, practicing physicians, and retired physicians -- volunteered their time to serve as delegates to the statewide House of Delegates to discuss policy issues of importance to the practice of medicine and patient care. Thank you all for sharing your expertise, and representing the Nashville Academy in such an impactful way!

NAM CEO Receives 2019 Women to Watch Award

From the time she was a young girl growing up in Alabama, Rebecca Leslie thought she would be a physician. While in college, she worked at the front office of an oral surgeon and discovered something unexpected ... she really enjoyed the analytical aspects and financial skills required to run a business.

Happily, her role leading the state's oldest medical society gives her the best of both worlds utilizing her business acumen to support area physicians as they work to make the community healthier. "The Nashville Academy of Medicine intersects with healthcare as we support 2,200 physicians in the greater Nashville area," Leslie said. "As physicians serve and give back to their patients each day, the Nashville Academy supports and provides what is needed for doctors and their practices to thrive."
