Governor’s Newsletter(Nov. 2021)


Fall is in full swing now and the covid-19 patients are rapidly decreasing in number, thanks to your endeavor. Subsequently, Winter is approaching but I hope there won’t be the sixth wave of the pandemic even in the cold season. To prevent the recurrence of the disease, we should be careful enough and learn about the virus. As a member of ACP I have appreciated the resources and support from ACP in providing care for the covid-19 patients. I encourage you to review the latest updates in the ACP homepage.

In this season, we are going to elect the Governor-Elect (GE) in the vote. Both of the candidates have leadership and cognizant of ACP matters well. So I firmly believe that he/she will be a good GE. If you haven’t voted yet, please make haste with your vote – the deadline is November 5th.

Lastly, let me ask you to stay current with your ACP membership, and to recommend to your professional IM colleagues and student/resident affiliates that they maintain and/or renew ACP membership. Membership provides you with various privileges including free access to Annals of Internal Medicine and other multiple free online resources, and we are planning to add more to the Japan chapter members in the near future.

I wish all of you a safe, healthy, and happy upcoming holiday season.

Kenji Maeda
