Dr. Mary Ann Bauman has been the chief medical correspondent for NEWS 9 since 1995. Every day on NEWS 9 at Noon, Dr. Bauman doses out her medical advice to Oklahomans on the segment Daily Dose.
She received her medical degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. For nine years, she served in a variety of teaching, practice, and administrative positions at Wayne State University, the University of South Dakota, and the University of Oklahoma. In 1991, she joined Baptist Medical Center, which later became INTEGRIS Health Inc. as medical director of the Women's Center and is now the medical director for Women's Health and Community Relations. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and maintains an active primary care practice.
In the early 1990s, Dr Bauman became convinced of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and the power of the mind-body connection. Powered with her mantra, "insight is not enough," she started speaking for the American Heart Association and served as the president of the Oklahoma City Affiliate in 2001. She was appointed to the six-state Heartland Affiliate Board in 2005 and is heavily involved in the AHA's "Go Red For Women" initiative.
Dr. Bauman authored the book "Fight Fatigue-Six Simple Steps to Maximize Your Energy" and serves on the editorial board of Medical Economics magazine.
