Governor's Newsletter October 2016

Dear Colleague,

I am writing today to share with you a new edition of the Governor’s Newsletter with important news and information for North Carolina internists.  Click here to download the newsletter.

As your Chapter Governor, I have a unique behind-the-scenes view of how our Chapter and the ACP national work together to meet the needs of our diverse membership.  I am continually impressed with the great work being done by members of our NC Chapter throughout the state.  Last month the NC-ACP Governor’s Advisory Council convened in Greensboro to discuss ongoing projects and future plans toward achieving the goals set forth in our Chapter Strategic Plan.  We are indeed growing stronger and improving the value of your membership support thanks to the involvement of these thoughtful members.  To the Council: Thank you!

At the Council meeting, we received a report on plans for the Chapter’s upcoming 2017 Annual Scientific Session from Program Co-Chairs Drs. Richard Wardrop and Deb Bynum.  In a word, “Wow.”  The theme of this year’s educational program is, “Meeting the Quadruple Aim in Modern Healthcare.”  The program will again include concurrent sessions on Inpatient Medicine and Outpatient Medicine.  New this year, there will also be sessions dedicated to physician wellness and resiliency.  Dick and Deb have put a lot of thought into this program and it’s shaping up to be one of our best yet.  The meeting is scheduled for February 24-25 at the Sheraton Imperial RTP.  I hope that you will join us!

Finally, please make a commitment now to cast your ballot in the upcoming presidential and statewide elections on November 8, 2016.  If you are not able to vote in person on Election Day, please visit the State Board of Elections website to locate a one-stop early voting site near you.

As always, thank you for your support and participation in the NC-ACP.  I hope that you enjoy this newsletter and I look forward to seeing you at the Chapter meeting in February.

Warmest regards,

Peter R. Lichstein, MD, FACP
