New ‘Top Docs’ show features Georgia Senate candidate Michelle Au, M.D.
The latest edition of the Medical Association of Georgia’s (MAG) ‘Top Docs’ show features Michelle Au, M.D., MPH, an anesthesiologist with Emory-St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta and a graduate of the MAG Foundation’s Georgia Physicians Leadership Academy who is running for the Georgia Senate’s 48th District – which includes Johns Creek, Duluth, and parts of Lawrenceville, Peachtree Corners, and Suwanee.
Dr. Au discusses…
– Her professional background
– Why she is running for office
– How we can improve the Georgia’s health care system
– Ways to improve Georgia’s practice environment
– Her priorities beyond health care
– Her suggestions for physicians who are thinking about running for office
– How people can get involved and support her campaign
Dr. Au graduated magna cum laude from Wellesley College with a degree in psychobiology, while she received her medical degree from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. She completed a residency in pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of New York (CHONY) and a residency in anesthesiology at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital at Columbia University. Dr. Au also has a master’s degree in public health from Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health.
Dr. Au wrote a medical memoir that is entitled ‘This Won’t Hurt a Bit (And Other White Lies): My Education in Medicine and Motherhood,’ which was published by Grand Central Publishing, and she is working on her second book, which is a “hybrid memoir about the history of anesthesiology blended with personal clinical stories.” She has written articles for The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, Slate, Medium, KevinMD, and Psychology Today.
Dr. Au lives in Johns Creek with her husband and fellow MAG member Joseph Walrath, M.D., and their three children.
