Message from the Chair

Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair 

As we approach the holiday season, and many of us are thinking about giving (and perhaps also receiving) gifts, I invite you to consider the gifts we provide to our communities and to the future of family medicine.

Each of us makes important contributions to our individual patients and our communities through our clinical service, our commitment to education and research, and our professional activities. I am continually impressed by the dedication and extraordinary achievements of our faculty, alumni, students and residents — and I thank you.
