Dr. Monalisa Tailor, a Louisville internal-medicine physician, is the new president of the Kentucky Medical Association. She is both the youngest and first female president of color in the association’s history. She was sworn in as the 172nd president at the organization’s annual meeting.
“For those of us working in healthcare, the Covid-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark on our lives. Stress and burnout are at an all-time high in our profession, while mistrust and misinformation among our patients could be considered an epidemic in itself,” Tailor said in a news release. “Now more than ever, we need to come together as physicians to combat these issues and reinvigorate ourselves so that we can continue to provide the best care for the people of the commonwealth.”
