David R. Anderson, MD, FRCPC, FACP, ACP Governor
I am proud to announce that the Atlantic Chapter has once again received an ACP Chapter Excellence Award!
This year's chapter meeting in Halifax was a resounding success with over 500 registrants. We were pleased to collaborate with the Canadian Society of Internal Medicine for this year's annual meeting. The planning committee will soon be developing programming for next year's meeting and we will keep you informed.
The six Canadian Chapters hosted a Canadian Doctor's Dilemma® competition, which was once again educational, fast-paced and entertaining! We were pleased to see a team from Dalhousie competing.
This will be my last newsletter as your Governor. Thank you to all council and committee members for their support over the last four years. I am grateful for the opportunity to help foster the growth of our ACP community in Atlantic Canada. The chapter will be in excellent hands under the leadership of Dr. Brian Moses who will become your new Governor in April.
Wishing you and your families the best of the holiday season!
