LOUISVILLE — Mamata Majmundar, M.D., a Lexington family medicine physician, was recognized Saturday as a Kentucky Medical Association Community Connector during the Leadership Dinner at the 2016 KMA Annual Meeting on Saturday.
Majmundar was one of nine physicians from across the commonwealth to graduate in the third class of the KMA Community Connector Leadership Program. The program is an opportunity for physicians to enhance their leadership skills through education and direct community involvement. Community Connectors are physicians who are engaged in their communities in an effort to promote the practice of medicine in Kentucky by working with business, government and civic leaders.
Majmundar, a board-certified family medicine physician, grew up in Eastern Kentucky as the daughter of physician parents. She spent her childhood and adolescent years working in her father’s office seeing first hand rewarding relationships in caring for families and helping others.
She received her B.S. from Transylvania University and her medical doctorate from the University of Louisville School of Medicine. She completed her internship and Family Medicine residency at the University of Kentucky.
Majmundar is a member of the Transylvania University Board of Regents and a former member of the Executive Alumni Board. She volunteers her time as a mentor for the 100 Doors to Success Program, assists as needed with sports physicals for student athletes and contributes to other health-related campus activities, such as career development or as a seminar speaker.
Majmundar is also an active leader within medicine and the community at large. She serves on the board of directors of Lexington Clinic and as a physician board member for the Lexington-Fayette County Board of Health. She is a member of the Kentucky Academy of Family Physicians, Kentucky Medical Association and the American Association of Physician Leaders.
Majmundar and her husband, Brian Sumner, live in Lexington. She enjoys participating in 5Ks, 10Ks and mini marathons.
