Michael J. Tan, MD, FACP, ACP Governor
We've finished another fantastic Chapter meeting. It was one of our best attended, and I'd like to thank all the faculty and attendees for their participation. Ideas and planning for the 2019 meeting are in motion and will build upon some of the wellness principles we've learned as well as the suggestions that attendees have provided. ACP continues to actively protect your needs as an Internal Medicine specialist. You may have recently seen reports regarding the NRA's response to ACP's position paper on gun violence. A number of the responses to this media frenzy came from non-internists. Regardless of your views of this topic, ACP's role impacts not just internists, but other practicing physicians and the general public. In the past few years, there have been more stories with ACP in the national spotlight. From gun violence to health care law, ACP's visibility has been growing, and allows for more leverage in working toward IM's goals. In the upcoming years, look for more chapter involvement in local and national advocacy as well as opportunities for more membership engagement.
Thank you all for being members of ACP. Have a wonderful holiday season and New Year.
Membership has grown in 2018. Total membership for Ohio is 5593 with 13 Masters and 962 Fellows. Please be sure to tell your colleagues about all of the member benefits available to them for joining ACP!
Ohio/Air Force Combined Scientific Chapter Meeting – October 4-5, 2018
We have just completed another successful combined Ohio/Air Force Chapter Scientific Meeting. We again had over 300 participants at our two-day meeting. Thank you to our Program Chair, Dr. Roberto Colon and our entire Program Committee for putting together such a robust program and thanks to all members who served as judges, faculty and moderators.
A special thanks goes to Dr. Andrew Dunn, a Regent of the College, and Chair-Elect of the Board of Regents, who traveled to Ohio to attend our meeting as well as serve as faculty and help judge posters. We also had a nice showing for our 3rd Governor's 5k, with a significant increase in participation for a pre-session run on Friday. This year marked our first ever Wellness Room at the meeting with yoga and relaxation sessions held throughout the day on Friday. We look forward to expanding on these two wellness-inspired activities next year.

Leadership Day 2019
Leadership Day will take place on May 14th & 15th on Capitol Hill. It is a tremendous opportunity to learn about ACP's Advocacy activities and have a chance to speak with Representatives and staff. This year we will be expanding our medical student funding by offering grants to each medical school to fund two students to attend. Each grant will be in the amount of $750.00. Students nominated to participate must be members of the Ohio Chapter. All other members of the Chapter are welcome to participate. More details will be forthcoming but please contact Jan Wrassman with questions. Click here for more information about ACP's Leadership Day.
Please join us in congratulating Keith B. Armitage, MD, MACP. Dr. Armitage became our newest Master of the Ohio Chapter on October 1st. Mastership is an award from the College and are nominated and supported by colleagues. ACP Bylaws state that Masters shall be Fellows who have been selected because of “integrity, positions of honor, eminence in practice or in medical research, or other attainments in science or in the art of medicine.” Masters must be highly accomplished persons demonstrating eminence in practice, leadership, or in medical research. Evidence of their achievements can come from many types of endeavors such as notoriety within their field and/or ACP chapter, research, education, health care initiatives, volunteerism, and administrative positions. The Master must be distinguished by the excellence and significance of his or her contributions to the field of medicine. For Mastership, ACP involvement is expected, with rare exceptions. This may include, for example, service to the College in an official capacity, participation in chapter activities, and involvement in the development of College products and educational programs. If you know of Fellows that may be potential candidates for Mastership or other Chapter awards, please let us know.
