He also served as a past convener of the AAFP National Conference of Constituency Leaders.

Dr. Lee received his BA from Stanford University, his MD as a Dean’s Scholar from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, and an MPH in Health Policy and Management from the Harvard School of Public Health. He is board-certified in Family Medicine.
