I look to the ACP to provide leadership in representing the
interests of internists in our interaction with government and
other professional organizations nationally and to facilitate
education and the dissemination of information of interest to our
constituents. I view our local Governor's role as the interface
between the Nebraska Chapter members and the national organization
in airing our agenda nationally and to reporting back locally as
well as encouraging participation in ACP and supporting education
in Nebraska. If elected I would strive to maintain the high
standard set by our previous leaders.
