I am honored to be nominated as a candidate for Governor of the
Georgia Chapter. I look forward to the opportunity to serve the
entire internal medicine community both present and future members.
I believe in the specialty of internal medicine with the current
and looming future unanticipated challenges that will confront the
practice of internal medicine. The Georgia Chapter is a vibrant and
award-winning chapter recognized for its positive impact on its
chapter members and the practice of internal medicine. My role as
Governor will be to advocate for internal medicine for the emerging
future of our medical students and residents and for the current
role for private practitioners, subspecialists and academic faculty
members that are engaged in the care of our adult patients. My
vision for the future of medicine is that there is a need for
transformational leadership that embraces the construct of the
absolute requirement for maintenance of the sacred trust between
the doctor and the patient. As Governor, I promise to tirelessly
work to inspire, empower, and stimulate the advancement for all
involved in the practice of internal medicine.
