“Perhaps now more than ever it is important for physicians to lean in and lead conversations about health and healthcare on behalf of our patients.  I am committed to health equity, particularly in this community where I live, work, and raise my children, and where we are training the next generation of physicians.  The Northern Colorado Medical Society provides an opportunity to have a grassroots voice in organized medicine, and I am happy to return as an alumnus to the Board of Directors.”
