Advocacy & Health Policy: Modern Healthcare Recognizes Leader of ACOG’s Health Policy Division
Barbara S. Levy, MD, ACOG Vice President of Health Policy, has been named as one of Modern Healthcare’s 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders.
Through its Awards and Recognition program, Modern Healthcare pinpoints individuals from all sectors of the health industry and allows readers of Modern Healthcare to vote for the leaders who they believe to have had the most influence. In this year's ranking, Modern Healthcare focused on leaders who have been especially influential in the improving of patient safety and quality of care. Also, this year, Dr. Levy is one of nine women included in the top 50 ranking.
In addition to her ACOG responsibilities, Dr. Levy is the chair of the American Medical Association/Specialty Society Relative Value Scale Update Committee (RUC). In ACOG's April 6, 2015 press release, Dr. Levy comments: “I am honored and humbled to be recognized by Modern Healthcare as a physician leader. As an obstetrician-gynecologist for 30 years, I have come to believe that caring for women means advocating for their access to quality care, and it means teaching America’s future women’s health care providers. I look forward to my continued work with ACOG to expand our leadership role in promoting quality health care for women.”
