Vision Statement

I am honored to be nominated for Governor and if elected would focus on 4 issues:

  • Adolescent health, particularly obesity and inactivity--- I believe that the College should contribute to local and national discussions and efforts to fight obesity via legislation and education of the public and political bodies;
  • Internal Medicine physician shortage---I would support the efforts of the ACP to improve the quality of internal medicine practice, including reimbursement reform and development/dissemination of practice management tools;
  • Health care reform--- I believe the current political and business climates are ready to address this issue and would strongly support the advocacy of the ACP for universal, high-quality, evidence based health care;
  • Education--The ACP is an important local and national source of education for internists and I would work to ensure that our local meeting remains an excellent source of CME and consider other regional educational venues as well.
