BU Alumna Named Editor-in-Chief of American Thyroid Association’s Clinical Journal

Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH) alumna Dr. Angela Leung has been named editor-in-chief of the American Thyroidology Association’s (ATA) monthly clinical journal, Clinical Thyroidology. Dr. Leung will begin her three-year term on January 1.

The online journal features a broad range of abstract and commentary by experts in the field on the most impactful and cutting-edge clinical thyroid literature. The ATA selected Dr. Leung to be editor-in-chief based on “her abilities to promote the growth, quality, reputation, and scholarship” of the journal.

“I am truly excited and honored for the chance to lead Clinical Thyroidology,” Dr. Leung says. “As one of several ATA journals, it is the one that is solely devoted to clinicians in helping them stay abreast of the current literature.”

Dr. Leung is currently a health sciences clinical assistant professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California Los Angeles, as well as at the Greater Los Angeles VA Healthcare System — but she honed her medical skills in Boston. Dr, Leung received her medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine (MED) in 2003 and then a Master of Science in Epidemiology from BUSPH in 2010. Between the degrees, she spent six years in postdoctoral training at MED and then became an instructor of medicine and assistant professor of medicine at the school.
