The Chapter Centennial Legacy Award celebrates ACP's centennial by recognizing one influential chapter member who served the chapter and made a significant impact on the chapter's viability. The award winner should exemplify ACP's core values, including leadership, excellence, respect, compassion, professionalism, and responsibility.
Enrique G. Lopez-Caffarena, MD, MACP became involved with ACP when he was President of the Santiago Medical Society. He co-directed the annual courses that the College and the Santiago Medical Society had been giving since 1968. Dr. Lopez-Caffarena played a role in establishing ACP's Chile Chapter. He developed the idea for establishing the Affiliate Region of the ACP in Chile. Chile was the first Affiliate Region in South American, and was made a full region, and subsequently a Chapter of the College. Dr. Lopez-Caffarena also was instrumental in recruiting members.
