She also has represented the AMA on the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, the American Board of Medical Specialties and COLA.

Her dedicated service in organized medicine extends to the local and state levels, where she has served as board chair and president of the Tarrant County Medical Society, and as vice speaker, speaker and president of the Texas Medical Association.

Dr. Bailey has been an allergist in private practice for more than 30 years. She completed her residency in general pediatrics and a fellowship in allergy/immunology at the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Rochester, Minnesota, and has been awarded the title of Distinguished Fellow of the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology.

UNMC kicked off its thought-provoking series in October with a presentation on design thinking, followed by a discussion on institutional racism, diversity and inclusion.
