The American Association of Clinical Urologists held its 5th Annual State Society Network Advocacy Conference in late September 2012. During the conference, New Jersey Assemblyman Herb Conaway, Jr., MD accepted the organization’s Distinguished Leadership Award, having been nominated by urologists in New Jersey for his work promoting the interests of patients and physicians in the legislature. Of these urologists, New Jersey Patient Care and Access Coalition President David Taylor, MD sponsored this nomination. Dr. Taylor highlighted Dr. Conaway’s commitment to public service as well as leadership on issues very important to the urologic community.

Dr. Conaway has served in the New Jersey General Assembly since 1998, as the only member with both a medical and law degree. He specializes in internal medicines and practices in Willingboro where he supports and focusses on prostate-specific antigen-based screening for prostate cancer and access to patient-centered integrated care.
