Adele L. Towers, MD, MPH, FACP, became the 154th president of the Allegheny County Medical Society Jan. 1, 2019. Only the fourth woman to hold the position, Dr. Towers originates from Connecticut, but has considered Pittsburgh her home since she moved to the Steel City in 1986 to complete her internal medicine residency at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. A fellowship in geriatric medicine and a master’s degree in Public Health followed in 1991. Dr. Towers was introduced to the medical profession at a young age. Her father passed away when she was 14 years old, and the physicians and nurses that took care of him when he was ill had a lasting impact on her.
