Third-year medical student Sherrita Polk was elected vice president of the National Student Executive Board of the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians recently during the 53rd annual ACOPF convention.
As vice president, she will oversee the performance of all local chapter officers and committees and present unresolved problems to the ACOFP Board of Governors. She also would perform the duties of the national president if that person is unable to do so.
In addition, the OSU student chapter of ACOFP was awarded the humanitarian award. The ACOFP works to promote excellence in osteopathic family medicine through quality education, visionary leadership and responsible advocacy.
