Kelly A McGarry, MD, FACP, ACP Governor
I hope that you have all had a nice fall in RI, enjoying some outside activities that RI offers in the fall or doing whatever brings you joy. Winter is just around the corner. I wanted to take the opportunity to share a few things with all of you.
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR GOVERNOR-ELECT
I am pleased to announce that our Governor-Elect is Dr. Kwame O. Dapaah-Afriyie, MBchB, FACP. Congratulations Kwame! The process for the transition to Governor is interesting. Kwame will begin his year as Governor-Elect joining me at the ACP Annual Meeting in April 2022. We then overlap for my last year as Governor so that I can show him the ropes. I will end my term in 2023 and Kwame will then begin his 4-year term, serving from 2023 to 2027. Kwame will have all of our support and will do great things in his role as Governor!
ANNUAL MEETING UPDATE
The work of the Annual RI ACP Chapter Meeting to be held on March 2, 2022 is well underway. Thanks to all the speakers who have agreed to share up-to-date and innovative knowledge that will help us care better for patients. You should have received a Save The Date Postcard in the mail.
