Candidate Statement: I am excited to be asked to be a nominee for Governor of the northern region. I have enjoyed the leadership experience at the Texas Chapter of ACP for several years watching our organization grow into a stronger voice for our patients at the local and national level with our voice being strong in DC and Austin. I always want to practice medicine and have enjoyed the opportunity of being a hospitalist, an administrator, and a clinical physician who now does both inpatient and outpatient care as well as house calls. The changes facing us as individual physicians are daunting, and I look forward to being the voice of Texas at a national level to insure ACP can help us in our joys and struggles in providing care here. I know many of the faces at national and state ACP and enjoy working with them on policy and strategy to help us all in our practice, our wellness, our advocacy, and educating our successors from medical students to early career physicians. Thanks for your consideration.
