There is no higher calling in Medicine than being an Internist; a specialist in the care of adults who uses their depth and breadth of knowledge of disease, skills at the bedside or exam table, and commitment to professionalism to provide the highest quality of care for patients from every walk of life with every imaginable type of health problem. My goal is to advance the mission of the College in order to promote the values of the ACP as we work to improve the healthcare system for patients and their doctors, improve the health of the public, and recruit and the train the next generation of Internists. Whether elected Governor, or as a rank and file member of the Pennsylvania ACP, I look forward to fighting for our patients, and fighting for Internists and sub-specialists who treat the sick and suffering.
