Despina Siolas Meets with Congressman Bishop
at AMA Lobby Day

Ms. Despina Siolas of Bayside and Mattituck, New York, who is a medical student in the MD/PhD. Program of Stony Brook/Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories attended the 2007 AMA (American Medical Association) Medical Student/Resident and Fellow Lobby Day on Monday, February 12 at the Hotel Washington, Washington D.C. Lobby day is an excellent opportunity for medical students to increase their awareness of legislative issues affecting medicine, to foster relationships with legislators through political involvement, and to gain real-life education in the practical aspects of physician advocacy. Ms. Siolas met with Congressman Tim Bishop discuss issues important to medical students, and the future of medicine. Congressman Bishop said he fondly recalls “a visit to the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church” that Ms. Siolas attends. She is a student member on the AMA Council on Long Range Planning and Development.
