As Governor of the Nevada Chapter of the ACP, my Vision will be
to carry the torch lit by my predecessors. I will endeavor to bring
Internal Medicine in Nevada to the next level by strengthening the
relationship between the ACP and its membership including medical
students, residents, fellows, practicing internists and academic
physicians. Facilitating their membership and active participation
is critically important to the growth, effectiveness and in
assuring the future of the Nevada Chapter. Making the Nevada ACP
Chapter more relevant to its members will empower them. There is
strength in numbers, particularly at a time when the future of
healthcare and the practice of medicine is rapidly changing. I will
be a strong advocate for the growth of Internal Medicine, not just
its survival, by keeping ACP members informed of the relevant
political, economic developments and health laws that affect
healthcare and their practices, by soliciting their opinions, and
in communicating more effectively with the ACP National

I am honored to be nominated for the Governorship of the
American College of Physicians Nevada Chapter. Being an ACP member
and Fellow for 35 years I consider ACP to be my professional home.
My current role as Associate Dean for Statewide Initiatives at the
University of Nevada School of Medicine has provided me with an
extraordinary opportunity to observe and impact the education and
training of the next generation of Internists. I have also
recognized the staggering disparities in health care availability
in rural Nevada and within our largest population centers.
The 21st Century Internist will be significantly different from
the 20th Century Internist. As a community physician for the first
25 years of my career, I have a wonderful perspective from which to
contribute to this evolution. My professional experience and
commitment to working to build the Nevada healthcare workforce
motivates my seeking the Governorship of our Chapter.
