New president of medical board

Written by Healthy Living

Dr. Wendy Lavezzi is the new president of the Lake-Sumter Medical Society Board of Governors. A member of the board since 2009, she served as treasurer during much of that time.

She is a forensic pathologist and works with the District 5 Medical Examiner’s Office as deputy chief medical examiner. District 5 includes Lake, Sumter, Marion, Citrus, and Hernando counties.

Her primary focus with the medical society will be to increase membership, update the group’s website, offer continuing medical education online, and address physician burnout.

The Lake-Sumter Medical Society comprises doctors of medicine and doctors of osteopathic medicine located within the two counties and provides support and services for membership.
