Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Welcome to our traditional April issue “Washington Update." DC has been a busy place this year: a new administration, new executive orders, a basically split Congress between the two parties, and unfortunately for the House of Medicine, rancor between the two parties.
We have been well served by our columnists over the last ten years or so, and we continue with them this issue, too.
We also include a special message from our Chair, Claudette Dalton, MD and an old column on the changing culture in the doctors office, sort of a “lite touch.”
"See" you soon,
Claudette Dalton, MD, Chair (VA)
John Poole, MD, Chair-elect (NJ)
Bill Clark, MD, Immediate Past Chair (GA)
Clay Hays, MD, Vice Chair (MS)
Stephen Imbeau, MD, SED Newsletter Editor (SC)
