Physician Family Media


That’s the “magic” number for this special edition of Physician Family/Alliance in Motion Magazine.

In case you haven’t heard, our publisher, the American Medical Association Alliance, is celebrating its Centennial in 2022. We’re honoring 100 YEARS of community service, health education, philanthropy, advocacy, and support of physician families!

We’re so proud we’ve included a special Centennial Celebration section in this issue to share some of the history and accomplishments of this amazing organization over the past 100 years.

AMA Alliance past president Jean Hill (1989-90) shares these thoughts: “Reflecting on the AMA Alliance as we approach the milestone of our 100th birthday celebration, I feel truly blessed to have been involved with one of the largest and oldest proactive grassroots organizations focused on public health.” 

Current president Heather Rifkin (2021-22) shares her own Centennial thoughts in Alliance in Motion: “For 100 years our organization has been bringing important news to physician families across the United States—news of support, encouragement and understanding.”

Incoming president Jacqueline L. Nguyen, Esq. (2022-23), added: “The AMA Alliance has a 100-year legacy of providing national health outreach and education, while also creating meaningful connections and friendships among its members nationwide. It is an honor to be a part of this legacy and a privilege to help shape the next 100 years.”

Physician Family Magazine has chosen to honor those 100 years by sharing 100 ways to improve life in your physician family with ten lists, each featuring ten tips. They include lists for managing medical school, residency/fellowship, active practice, retirement, medical moves, relationships, health and well-being, financial well-being, the ten books all physician families should read and the ten best issues of Physician Family Magazine!

Also in this issue, the Sotile family has been counseling and educating physician families for half a century; they discuss what has changed for physician families – and what hasn’t. A family therapist discusses the importance of celebrating milestones. There’s an article about transformative change. The Centennial Section celebrates 100 years of AMA Alliance history and Alliance in Motion shares important information about our ongoing mission to serve physician families and ensure healthier communities.

Being part of a physician family isn’t for the faint of heart – we need other people who “get it” in our lives. That’s why the AMA Alliance has enriched so many lives over its 100 year history, providing friendships, opportunities for personal growth, community service and SO much more. It’s easy to become part of this venerable yet current organization. Just go to and become part of our NEXT 100 years!
