Incoming Governor's Message

Dr. Lahoud

Nadine Lahoud, MD, MBA, FRCPC, FACP

During these early days of spring, I've been reflecting on the challenges that I want to take up during the four years of my term.

It will be a very special honour, as the next ACP Governor of the Quebec Chapter, to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Linda Snell and Dr. Donald Echenberg, two outstanding doctors who make our specialty stand proud. Both have paved the way for an organized, continually growing chapter that meets the highest standards of the College chapters. I hope to be able to match their achievements by helping to increase the College's visibility among medical students, residents and Internal Medicine specialists. As well, I will continue to organize the annual, joint ACP-ASMIQ scientific sessions, expand our membership, and promote the College's educational activities.

I thank Dr. Donald Echenberg, who will soon be leaving the office of ACP Governor of the Quebec Chapter, and wish him every success as he continues his clinical and educational practices. Through his openness and ability to bring people together, he successfully forged strong ties among the various academic settings in Quebec. On everyone's behalf, I express our sincerest thanks.
