    Hanna Hussey, MDThe UAB Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine is pleased to announce that Assistant Professor Hanna Hussey, M.D., has assumed the role of Associate Fellowship Director for the department’s Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship. In this role, she will be working with Mark Powell, M.D., Director of the Obstetric Anesthesiology Fellowship.

    Dr. Hussey graduated from Florida State University. She completed her Anesthesia residency at Columbia University and Obstetric Anesthesia fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Marnix E. Heersink School of Medicine. We were extremely fortunate to retain Dr. Hussey as a faculty member in our department.

    She is a member of multiple professional societies, including the American Society of Anesthesiologists, International Anesthesia Research Society, American College of Physicians, American Medical Association, and Society of Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology.

    Dr. Hussey is an outstanding clinician and dedicated educator. In her short time with us, she has enthusiastically and deeply embedded herself in the Obstetric Anesthesia section. Her research interests include management of high-risk obstetric cardiac anesthesia, health care disparities in the obstetric population, and educational programs for trainees involving neuraxial anesthesiology.

    Dr. Hussey has already been highly involved in committees to better our department, and we look forward to seeing the transformative advancements she will bring as a result of her new role.
