Paul Anderson MD
I am deeply thankful to all of the FSA Board for this unexpected accolade. What we have accomplished this year could not have been done without all those who have labored for years before me, built decade-long relationships before me, and led before me. I truly appreciate all those who helped guide me through my first year as Chair of the Legislative Affairs Committee and for trusting me to be a part of the future of our organization. I could not have done this without the support of those around me, but I would like to especially thank President Brence Snell and Jay Epstein. The future belongs to those willing to work, and I want to continue putting in the work to build upon what we have already accomplished.

“I just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Brence Sell and the FSA Board members. I really did not expect this award and was quite surprised! Thanks for allowing us all to creatively push the envelope with new ideas involving the annual meeting, and marketing initiatives for membership engagement and legislative affairs. The FSA is a volunteer organization, and all the work is borne by these committed physicians that choose to devote their personal time and dedicate it to their profession. Thank you Brence for all your support, and a great year!”
