Dear Faculty, Staff, Students, and Alumni,

It is my pleasure to announce Francesca Dwamena, MD, MS, FACP, as the new chair of the Department of Medicine in the College of Human Medicine effective August 17. Dr. Dwamena received her MD degree from Howard University College of Medicine before completing her internal medicine residency at Emory University Affiliated Hospitals in Atlanta. She holds a master’s degree in epidemiology and has completed a fellowship in psychosocial medicine.

The Department of Medicine has a long history of excellent patient care, research, and educational innovation, and I have every confidence that Dr. Dwamena will expand on these departmental strengths.

Please welcome Dr. Dwamena as chair of the Department of Medicine.

Aron Sousa, MD
