The Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine Alumni Association elected two local physicians to its board of directors.

Adam M. Franks, M.D., is a professor in the department of family and community health at the Marshall School of Medicine. He earned his medical degree from Marshall in 1999 and then completed his residency at Marshall. He also had a fellowship in surgical obstetrics at Advanced Maternal Care in Memphis, Tennessee. He now practices family medicine at Marshall University Medical Center and at Marshall Family Medicine in Lavalette.

The second physician elected was Adrienne M. Mays, M.D. She is an assistant professor in the department of family & community health at the Marshall School of Medicine. Mays earned her medical degree in 2009 and completed her residency at Marshall. She practices family medicine at Marshall University Medical Center. Mays serves as the medical director of the clinical skills lab and is the course director for Introduction to Clinical Skills and Advanced Clinical Skills at the School of Medicine.

Linda S. Holmes, executive director of the School of Medicine Alumni Association said the board is excited to have both physicians on the alumni board.

“We are thrilled to welcome the enthusiasm that Drs. Franks and Mays bring to our medical alumni board,” said Holmes. “In 2015 and 2016, we’re focusing on engagement and scholarships, so we’re looking forward to the new ideas they will bring to the table.”

The Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine Alumni Association helps connect and engage medical alumni from across the country with events and activities. The association is not a dues-based organization, but rather encourages alumni to direct those resources toward medical student scholarships.

Franks and Mays were each elected to serve a four-year term with the board of directors, effective July 1.
