Since I first attended the ACP annual meeting as a resident over twenty years ago, I have been an ardent supporter of the College. I value the ACP’s commitment to education and advocacy for us and our patients. Through the encouragement of MN Chapter leaders, I have been given an opportunity to pursue numerous activities within the College, locally and nationally. This has provided me immense professional satisfaction, and I would like to extend those same opportunities to you and other internists throughout Minnesota. We have an incredible pool of talent in this state, and we can be proud of our record of providing high quality, patient-centered care and medical education. As we continue to build upon this strong foundation, our Chapter will provide the tools and support needed to maintain this level of excellence (e.g., by helping our members meet Maintenance of Certification requirements in the least burdensome way).
