The AHA Board of Trustees elected Joanne M. Conroy, M.D., chief executive officer and president of Dartmouth Health, based in Lebanon, N.H., as its chair-elect designate. Dr. Conroy will be chair-elect in 2023 and become the 2024 chair of the AHA. Dr. Conroy is a member of the AHA Executive Committee and Operations Committee.
