    Tochi Iroku-Malize, MD, MPH, MBA, FAAFP

    The American Academy of Family Physicians has been a significant part of my life. I have been a member for nearly 25 years. I have grown as a leader, advocate, and physician thanks to the AAFP. As I begin my term as president, I remain committed to strengthening primary care by encouraging our members to be change agents in their communities and throughout the health care system, by advocating for better health care policies and payment, and by emphasizing the importance of physician well-being.
