Newport News, VA, August 02, 2019 – Local medical group, Tidewater Physicians Multispecialty Group (TPMG), a network of over 220 physicians and advanced clinicians in over 75 offices across the Tidewater area, is proud to announce the naming of John E. Brady, MD as Board Chair of the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM).
The ABFM is a not for profit organization governed by a Board of Directors whose mission is to improve the health of the public by assuring that any family physician who holds their certification has met rigorous standards. The ABFM is the third-largest board of the American Board of Medical Specialists (ABMS).
The ABFM Board of Directors is composed of physicians and public members who are passionate about both family medicine and quality patient care and have exemplified themselves as leaders in the field. The naming of Dr. Brady as Board Chair is a great accomplishment and TPMG values all the work he does for his patients and community.
“When I was elected to be on the board of the ABFM, I hoped to be able to articulate both the voice and the frustrations of the front line physician. Being named Board Chair four years later means the board appreciates my perspective and the work I have tried to accomplish. I am deeply honored to be given this opportunity,” said Dr. Brady of TPMG The Village Doctor.
“We are very proud of Dr. Brady’s achievements at ABFM and the impacts he makes for other physicians around the country. He continues to be an astounding physician for TPMG and we look forward to seeing his career flourish,” said Scott J. Banning, MD of TPMG Hidenwood Family Medicine.
