Winning Abstracts from the 2008 Medical Student Abstract Competition: Cocaine-induced Hepatotoxicity

Cocaine is the second most commonly used illicit drug in the United States.

Recent clinical evidence, however, demonstrates that the liver is also a target organ of cocaine-related toxicity.

Advocacy Brief: Make Your Voice Heard on Capitol Hill

Key Contacts are asked to communicate with their members of Congress regarding issues of importance to internists and their patients and report the results back to ACP. As key issues approach the decision-making stage on Capitol Hill, the College e-mails or faxes legislative alerts to Key Contacts. Legislative alerts include all of the necessary information (including sample messages that can be easily personalized) to send informative communications to members of Congress.
