William N. Hannah, Jr, MC USAF, FACP,
As I prepare to attend the Fall Board of Governors Meeting, I
wanted to highlight some of the things going on in our chapter and
the ACP. The Air Force Chapter had a very successful year, which
was highlighted at our annual meeting in Boston. We had several
residents and chapter members in attendance, some of whom you can
see at the bottom of this newsletter.
Shortly, I will be sending out instructions for our virtual
resident abstract competition. This was a very competitive process
last year, and I am hoping to attract more residents to the
competition this year. If anyone has any ideas for additional
categories for the competition, please let me know. Our jeopardy
teams competed virtually with SAUSHEC leading the pack. Given how
successful this was, I am hoping to duplicate this again this
Our chapter thrives on our active membership, and this is my
opportunity to remind you to please renew in a timely fashion.
All of the exceptional benefits of membership in ACP will
expire on September 30, 2015, for those who have yet to
pay their dues. I am proud to report that the Air Force chapter
continues to have some of the lowest chapter dues in the ACP.
Please consider contacting ACP customer service at 800-523-1546 ext
2600 to renew.
Our joint Ohio and Air Force chapter meeting is right around the
corner on October 22 and 23, 2015 in Columbus Ohio. This will be an
exceptional opportunity for our chapter members in this region to
attend and network with colleagues and friends. Please review the
agenda. I will be in attendance in Columbus and look forward to
seeing you there.
Lastly, I am pleased to welcome Eli Kinberg to
our leadership council. Eli is a student member at UCF College of
Medicine who is working diligently to improve our chapter outreach
with medical students, particularly HPSP students. Please
read more about Eli.
I will update you more after the Fall Board of Governors
Meeting, and I look forward to seeing many of you in Columbus,

Physicians Position Paper also noted that conscious scrutiny is
especially important as policymakers and stakeholders shape the
landscape for telemedicine going forward. A summary of the paper is
