New Hampshire Chapter Delegation Attends Leadership Day 2022

A NH ACP delegation including Drs. Bill Palmer, Jan Fonseka, Phil Palmer, and Kent Powell attended ACP’s Leadership Day on May 17th and 18th to advocate for ACP’s priority issues. They had excellent meetings with the offices of Congresswoman Kuster, Congressman Pappas, Senator Hassan, and Senator Shaheen and hope to continue the dialog and advocate for changes to make it easier for internal medicine physicians to deliver care and to improve the healthcare of all NH patients


ACP Leadership Day on Capitol Hill

ACP’s annual national advocacy event, Leadership Day, will take place in Washington, D.C. this year on May 14-15. Leadership Day enables the College to increase its presence on Capitol Hill and advocate directly with Congress in support of legislation directly impacting internal medicine physicians and their patients. To help our members prepare for Leadership Day, we have developed a frequently asked questions (FAQs) document with logistical information for the event. The FAQs can be accessed here.
