Vision Statement
My goal, as potential Governor of the SD Chapter, ACP, is to bring the substantial resources of our chapter to bear on all areas of concern, both locally and nationally, relative to the practice of Internal Medicine, and the health of all of the patients we are charged to serve. To accomplish this I would utilize the inherent collegiality, professionalism, and spirit of cooperation and volunteerism for which our chapter is known, and help coordinate the energies and ideas of our very active membership. To serve in such a capacity would be an honor, and a privilege.
