Name: Alexander Hawkins
Institution: Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Statement of Interest: I am honored to be considered for the position of AAS Councilor for the Class of 2016. This is an opportunity to continue to serve an association that has brought me significant personal and professional value over the past decade. Following time on the Publication and Leadership Committees, I have had the opportunity to chair the Publications Committee for the past two years. I look forward to leveraging this experience in representing my class as a councilor.
Name: Joseph Phillips
Institution: Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center
Statement of Interest: The AAS has provided me with a wealth of opportunities to grow as a surgeon, researcher and educator. The collegiality, cooperation, mentorship and diversity of our organization are inspiring and I would like to help further guide its direction. I have served on multiple committees for our Association, including on the Executive Council as chair of the Subspeciality and Membership Committees. Being a councilor would allow me to represent the interests of the Class of 2016 and help to shape and implement strategies and initiatives as the AAS expands to reach new members and support current members.
Name: Anji Wall
Institution: Baylor University Medical Center
Statement of Interest: The opportunity to serve AAS as a Councilor for the class of 2016 would be such an honor. I have served as a member of the ethics committee, chair of the ethics committee and member of the education committee. I love this organization and believe that I can bring diversity to the executive council as both a hybrid academic/private practice surgeon, a PhD bioethicist and a female transplant surgeon. I am passionate about further developing the academic discipline of surgical bioethics in both my own personal career and as a mentor for students and trainees and AAS has given me the opportunity to do this on a national level.
