My professional career has been devoted to the value that pathologists bring to patients and healthcare institutions. This includes board experience with the CAP, hospitals and other medical organizations. I dispel misconceptions about pathologists in my actions and achievements. As your CAP President, I will use every CAP resource to demonstrate the value that we bring to American healthcare. Success will be when non-pathologists recognize and praise the value pathologists bring to their healthcare organizations. Success will be when people are healthier because of excellence in the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine.
