Space is limited and RSVPs are required, so register soon, and please spread the word. This is our first mixer since 2019!

Our new President, Toluwalase (Lase) Ajayi, MD is off to a strong start. After being elected the first San Diegan to ever sit on the American Medical Association Board, Dr. Ajayi recently received a special recognition from the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. Led by Chair Nathan Fletcher, the Board commended Dr. Ajayi for “outstanding service, leadership, and commitment to the citizens of San Diego County” and declared June 28th as ‘Dr. Toluwalase Ajayi Day’ throughout the County!

The County’s formal proclamation read in part:
WHEREAS, Dr. Ajayi is a hospitalist and pediatric palliative medicine physician at Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego; serves as the Director of Diversity Initiatives and a Senior Staff Scientist in Digital Medicine at the Scripps Research Translational Institute; and is the co–medical director of adult palliative medicine at Scripps Mercy Hospital San Diego; and
WHEREAS, Dr. Ajayi’s research focuses on opportunities at the intersection of novel digital medicine technologies and unmet needs in maternal fetal health as well as pain and palliative medicine and she is a member of the Pediatric Operations Task Force and on the Digital Health Technologies committee of the All of Us Research Program with the National Institutes of Health as well as the Palliative Care Research Cooperative; and
WHEREAS, Dr. Ajayi is SDCMS’ 152nd President, its 9th female President, and the first Black woman to hold the position in the organization’s long history and during her Presidency, Dr. Ajayi plans to prioritize physician wellness as she works with the medical community to address the impact of systemic racism and bias on the most vulnerable and least served patients
Congratulations to Dr. Ajayi on this latest honor.

As always, let me know if you have any questions! Paul Hegyi, CEO
