In her role as chair, Dr. Arbaje will become a member of ACP’s Board of Regents and will address matters affecting the fields of internal medicine and related subspecialties, particularly on the issues of care transitions, care coordination, effective public health messaging, trustworthy patient-centered care and physician well-being.
