ISSWSH Welcomes New President - Dr. James A. Simon

ISSWSH welcomes Dr. James A. Simon, M.D., Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington D.C., as its new President.

Dr. Simon’s goals for his two-year term presidency include doubling the ISSWSH membership by expanding the knowledge of physicians (gynecologists, urologists, internists, and other primary care givers), advanced practice nurses (nurse practitioners, midwives, etc.), physician assistants, mental health providers (e.g., psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric social workers, certified sexual health counselors and educators), and pelvic floor physical therapists in the oft-neglected field of sexual medicine, a discipline with similar quality of life impact as arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, and irritable bowel syndrome. Further, Dr. Simon vows to pressure the FDA into removing sexually discriminatory barriers to the development of new medications focused on improving women’s sexual health.

Dr. Simon served most recently as the President Elect of ISSWSH. He is also a Past-President of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS), and The Washington Gynecological Society.

Dr. Simon is a prolific clinical researcher, holding distinctions for his involvement in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, the earliest advancements of in vitro fertilization, menopause, osteoporosis, and sexual medicine. Dr. Simon’s research has been supported by more than 360 research grants and scholarships from a wide range of sponsors, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), The American Heart Association, The Heinz Foundation and the pharmaceutical industry. He is an author or a co-author of more than 550 peer-reviewed articles, chapters, textbooks, abstracts, and other publications, including several prize-winning papers. Dr. Simon is coauthor of the paperback book “Restore Yourself: A Woman’s Guide to Reviving Her Sexual Desire and Passion for Life.” A short list of his other honors and achievements includes being selected to “Top Washington Physicians,” “America’s Top Obstetricians and Gynecologists,” and “The Best Doctors in America.” Dr. Simon and his care team continue to treat patients from all around the world in his private practice in Washington, D.C.
