My vision as Governor is to improve the health of Alabamians
through the action of ACP members. I will accomplish such goal by
offering continuous updates and a forum so members remain informed
on seismic changes upon us. Over the next several years the
Affordable Care Act (ACA), board certification, and the changes
proposed by the ACGME will shape the future of American medicine in
a way we have not seen since the enactment of the Medicare Act and
the release of the Flexner report. As your Governor I will maintain
you abreast of the College leadership opinions and actions in
regards to ACA, ABIM, and ACGME as well as carrying back your
concerns and ideas to the Board of Governors and Board of Reagents.
As a physician, my passion is to provide the best possible care for
those we serve and the best training to those we teach.
