Statement attributable to:
Michael Munger, MD, FAAFP
American Academy of Family Physicians
"The American Academy of Family Physicians recently announced that Douglas E. Henley, MD, FAAFP, executive vice president and chief executive officer for the AAFP since 2000, has notified the board of directors of his intention to leave his role with the organization next year. Dr. Henley's last day as the AAFP's EVP and CEO will be Aug. 1, 2020, the 20th anniversary of his tenure.
"Dr. Henley will remain at the helm of the AAFP and fully committed to his role until August of next year. During that time the AAFP will initiate a nationwide search for his successor. Because of the ample notice Dr. Henley provided, the AAFP expects seamless transition and onboarding for a new leader sometime in 2020.
So many aspects of modern life have changed in the last 20 years, and health care in America has experienced some of the most evolutionary transformation. The AAFP has accomplished many things under Dr. Henley’s leadership, and there is much more to work to do on behalf of family medicine over the course of Dr. Henley’s next 15 months."
