CHICAGO, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — LUGPA, an organization advocating for integrated and coordinated urological care with more than 2,000 member physicians across the U.S., announces Juan A. Reyna, MD, a urologist practicing in San Antonio, is the new president of the Board of Directors. Reyna was installed in the position during the LUGPA annual membership meeting in Chicago.
“As a founding member of LUGPA, I’ve seen the impressive work that’s been done by the organization and its members,” said Reyna. “I look forward to building upon LUGPA’s successes as we work to support the growth of our member practices, collaborate with other specialty associations and enhance patient education.”
Reyna is the founder of Urology San Antonio, an integrated urology practice with 29 physicians, 200 employees, eight urology clinics and a cancer treatment facility. He led the practice as CEO for 30 years before stepping down in 2012.
Reyna and his wife, Joni, are the creators of Los Padres, a San Antonio-based non-profit dedicated to improving men’s health by creating community awareness about prostate cancer, particularly the need for early detection.
