Suja Mathew, MD, FACP, ACP Governor, Illinois Northern
I am delighted to send this edition of the Governor's newsletter. We have had a great spring, and I am personally looking forward to a wonderful summer.
ACP had a spectacular time in NOLA at IM2018, and the Illinois membership showed up in full force. Not only did we learn at excellent scientific sessions, but we also enjoyed reuniting with old friends and the company of new colleagues. Enjoy some photos from our Illinois reception below, and please plan to join us next year in Philadelphia.
Our chapter's delegation also made our mark on Capitol Hill at ACP's annual Leadership Day. The Illinois delegation was one of the largest ACP groups on the Hill on May 23rd. We were able to meet with congressional leaders and staffers to discuss our priority issues: expanding coverage and stabilizing the insurance market; reducing unnecessary administrative tasks on physicians and patients; reducing prescription drug costs, funding for workforce, medical and health services research, public health; promoting continued action to address the epidemic of opioid use; reducing firearms related injury and death; making graduate medical education funding more productive. I also had the personal honor of introducing Representative Peter Roskam (District 6), our invited speaker, to the entire ACP delegation.
Locally this spring, the chapter has been busy with a number of activities aimed at meeting the needs of our members. From financial planning for residents to opioid management for our hospitalists and early career physicians, we continue to respond to your requests through the highest quality programming. Over the next few weeks, we will be holding Meet the Governor/SEP module sessions at Christ Hospital and Central DuPage Hospital. I hope to meet many of you at these events intended to bring the value of ACP to the community.
Finally, we will be holding events targeted at our resident members, women members, and early career members.
I hope each of you finds rest and recharge, surrounded by the people you love, over the summer months ahead.
As always, please reach out to me with any questions or input. I look forward to knowing you more.

The paper addresses a wide range of issues, such as support for paid family and medical leave, recommendations on policies to reduce domestic violence, sexual abuse and harassment, and participation in clinical trials.
