The DC Chapter of ACP has always had a lot to offer our community of Internists. The local scientific session presents excellent educational programs and our ACP committees continue to make significant contributions to national ACP policy. The DC Chapter also provides a helpful framework to the community of Internists in our area. The Women in Medicine group is an example of that framework, organizing networking and educational programs for women Internists. If elected, I would like to expand on this program to facilitate these types of networking and educational programs amongst Internists in all types of practice; academic, private and dedicated research. I would also like to see the DC Chapter take an even more active role in sharing with medical students the rewards of being an Internist. I am honored to be nominated for Governor of our local chapter and I ask for your support.
