My goal, as potential Governor of the SD Chapter, ACP, is to bring
the substantial resources of our chapter to bear on all areas of
concern, both locally and nationally, relative to the practice of
Internal Medicine, and the health of all of the patients we are
charged to serve. To accomplish this I would utilize the inherent
collegiality, professionalism, and spirit of cooperation and
volunteerism for which our chapter is known, and help coordinate
the energies and ideas of our very active membership. To serve in
such a capacity would be an honor, and a privilege.
