Council positions opening are those representing the Lake Charles/Lafayette area, the Alexandria area and the New Orleans area, in addition to one At-Large position.  If you are interested, please contact us via the LA ACP Chapter email.  Send us your name, a brief description of your medical practice environment and experience, as well as a brief paragraph about why you’d like to be involved with the LA ACP Governor’s Advisory Council. 

Please send responses by Tuesday, January 11th!
