For Immediate Release

A. Frank Donaghue has resigned as CEO of Physicians for Human Rights. During Donaghue’s tenure, PHR made critical contributions on a wide array of human rights issues, from forced labor in Burma to enhanced interrogation techniques in the United States.
Frank Davidoff, MD, will be serving as interim CEO while a national search for a permanent CEO is conducted.
