Presidential Inauguration of Nicole Heath Bixler, DO, MBA, FACOFP
As you may know, with the cancellation of the in-person ACOFP '20 annual convention last March, we were unable to induct Nicole Bixler, DO, MBA, FACOFP, as the fourth female president in ACOFP history.
Given the unprecedented events and decision to cancel the in-person components of our annual convention, the ACOFP Congress of Delegates voted to essentially stay the Board of Governors for the year to add stability in leadership during these turbulent times—with a few exceptions. We had to approve new student and resident governors, and it was decided to split the role of president over the course of the year. As a result of this decision, Dr. Bixler’s term officially begins in October 2020. She will continue to lead the organization as president into March 2022.
Since we are still working under challenges posed by COVID-19, the presidential inauguration ceremony will be held virtually, and you are invited to attend. Please join ACOFP leadership on Thursday, October 15, at 7 pm CT, as we recognize, honor and celebrate Dr. Nicole Bixler as she takes office.
