Temple's Chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences Elected to Leadership Role with American Cancer Society
Enrique Hernandez, MD, Professor and Chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Temple University School of Medicine, was recently elected Second Vice President of the American Cancer Society. In this role, which puts him in line to be Society President in 2016, Dr. Hernandez will help set the organization's annual agenda as well as its strategic, long-term objectives.
"It is an honor to have a role in leading the world's largest volunteer organization dedicated to fighting cancer," said Dr. Hernandez. "My history with the Society dates back to the early 1980s when I was fortunate enough to receive financial support from the Society while I was doing my oncology fellowship."
Dr. Hernandez has served the Society in numerous leadership roles throughout his career. Between 1988 and 1996 he was a member of the GYN Committee for the Society's Philadelphia Division. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the Society's Pennsylvania Division, serving as president from 2008 to 2010, and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the East Central Division. In 2009, he was elected to the Society's national Board of Directors. Over the years he has been an important link to the Latino community and acted as a speaker at numerous cancer symposiums.
"I am thrilled with the appointment of Dr. Hernandez to the office of Second Vice President," said Frank McGrady, Executive Vice President of the American Cancer Society, Inc., and East Central Division Operating Officer. "He has been an asset to the organization in Philadelphia, served us well as a division board leader, and I know he will help us save more lives serving in his newest role."
