Sarah Rothschild is the new executive director of the Wisconsin Medical Alumni Association (WMAA) at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, as of October 18, 2021.

Since 2014, Rothschild has been the director of constituent relations for the University of Virginia’s Medical Alumni Association and Medical School Foundation. There, she developed a program that constantly evolved to engage the school’s alumni, students, trainees and faculty. That evolution took on many forms, from developing virtual content to establishing targeted programming around common interest, identity or purpose.
