I hope everyone is having a good start to summer and has some vacation time scheduled. As usual, there are lots of great things going on at ACP. Just returned from Leadership Day, where we discussed hot advocacy issues (see below). As I enter my final year as Governor, I reflect on the things we have accomplished, and the tasks yet to do. The MOC (Maintenance of Certification) issue continues to be one that I will keep you informed about as much as possible. I know the Indiana Chapter will be in great hands with our Governor-elect, Dr. Brad Allen.
ACP's annual advocacy session, Leadership Day, took place at the Westin DC City Center in Washington, DC on May 20-21. The first day consisted of an advocacy workshop and presentations by several faculty and congressional staff members.
While SGR is dead, a number of other important issues were addressed. A summary of ACP's policy issues can be found here:
The second day consisted of a brief meeting at the hotel followed by meetings with our members of Congress and their staff. Our delegation this year consisted of me, Brandon Dickey (our ACP Services President), Jeff Glant, Lina Gordy (IUSM resident) and Amanda Ngouajio (IUSM student). Thanks to Jeff Glant for again making the appointments with Congressional staff.

In a paper published in Annals of Internal Medicine, Screening for Cancer: Advice for High-Value Care From the American College of Physicians, ACP issued advice for screening average risk adults without symptoms for five common cancers: breast, colorectal, ovarian, prostate, and cervical.
A historic event happened on July 1, 1998: the merger between ACP and ASIM. This merger required much work on the behalf of both parties and significantly increased the voice of internal medicine. Details of this merger can be found here:
