Governor's Message

The ACP Western Chapters meeting with the Rocky Mountain GIM Meeting was another success. Our Chapter was pleased to support the AM Edwards/ACP Lecture with Dr. Kevin Patterson (Nanaimo) giving an excellent talk on Consumption: How TB Shaped Healthcare. Next years' meeting will be held in collaboration with the Canadian Society of Internal Medicine October 10-13, 2018 in Banff – plan to attend!

In October, the Canadian Chapters were pleased to host the ACP's Board of Governors meeting which was held in Montreal. Physicians from around the world attended, and we were proud to have the opportunity to highlight Canadian culture.
