Congratulations to Dr. Jokela and Dr. Neilson on their masterships

Congratulations to Eric G. Neilson, MD, MACP, Chicago, Illinois and Janet A. Jokela, MD, MACP, Urbana, Illinois, the newest Mastership awardees of the American College of Physicians (MACP) for the Illinois chapter. MACP is one of the most prestigious awards in the college, for those fellows of the college who demonstrate integrity, the utmost professional behaviors, excellence in the practice of medicine, and significant impact on the profession. MACPs represent a very small percentage of college membership. Join me in congratulating them on this tremendous accomplishment.
