Minneapolis, October 13, 2020 – The Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP) announces Daron Gersch, MD, FAAFP, of Albany, Minnesota, as candidate for vice speaker for the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Congress of Delegates. He’s running for election at the 2021 Congress of Delegates.

Gersch sees the role of vice speaker as ensuring that the will of the majority is enacted while the voice of the minority is heard and helping to shape and inspire the next generation of family physicians.

He has been a practicing rural family physician in Minnesota for more than 25 years and a long-time leader in the Minnesota chapter of the AAFP. He has served as MAFP president, treasurer, speaker, vice speaker, delegate, alternate delegate, parliamentarian and more. He has also served his community of Albany as mayor and sat on the Minnesota Department of Health Rural Health Advisory Committee.

“Daron, a member of the National Association of Parliamentarians, is a respectful listener, thoughtful leader and works hard to set the right tone when chairing meetings. His valuable perspective will be a great asset to the AAFP Congress of Delegates. I hope you will join me in supporting Daron Gersch, MD, FAAFP, for vice speaker,” said Renée Crichlow, MD, FAAFP, MAFP leader and immediate past president.
