Angela Poppe Ries has served as director of palliative care at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health since 2011.
In 2014, she was elected president of the medical staff of the health system. She also serves on the board of directors.
“I created an entire palliative care program from the ground and now have grown to four full-time employees,” she said. “Our department is one of the busiest and most effective in the state, yet we still work to help develop programs throughout the state, educate communities and shape legislation.”
Since 2011, Ries has volunteered on the board of directors of the Senator Bob Hooper House.
