Welcome and Introduction
As you are likely aware, we had a search for an Executive Director with hopes of identifying someone for the 0.6 FTE position that could hit the ground running while at the same time bring a servant leadership construct to the many exciting opportunities that NAPCRG is engaged in.
On behalf of the Executive Committee, it is my pleasure to welcome a friend and colleague back to NAPCRG – Dr. Tom Vansaghi. Tom, we are thrilled to have you. All members of the Executive Committee have had the opportunity to work with Tom in the past and look forward to moving forward together in a purposeful, transparent, and meaningful way. Please consider sending Dr. Vansaghi a message to welcome him back to NAPCRG: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Stacy Brungardt, Interim Executive Director, for her extensive contributions to NAPCRG during the past several months. Words that I once read in a card of thanks go something like this: Kindness in words creates confidence; Kindness in thinking creates profoundness; and Kindness in giving creates love. These are the gifts that we had the opportunity to give each other these past several months. So, Stacy, in my own words, we could not have done it without you. Thank you!

PaCE invites wider audience to contribute to Annual Meeting abstracts
Did you engage patients and/or community members, and community clinicians in your research? Are you a participatory or patient engagement researcher? Now you can include patients, community members and community clinicians as co-authors on NAPCRG abstracts for the 51st Annual Meeting this year. Patient, community members, and community clinicians are terrific co-authors and co-presenters for oral presentations, posters, workshops, and forums. Include them in your abstracts, and then bring them to the Annual Meeting. The Patient and Clinician Engagement (PaCE) Committee has a preconference the day before NAPCRG kicks off. We hope to see everyone at NAPRG this year.

Former NAPCRG President inducted into AAP
Diane Harper, MD, MPH, former NAPCRG president, is being inducted into the Association of American Physicians. Her induction in April clears a path for more primary care researchers in future years with AAP. This award coincides with the NASEM report calling for more research within primary care/family medicine.
The AAP is an honorary medical society founded in 1885 by the Canadian physician Sir William Osler and six other distinguished physicians of his era for "the advancement of scientific and practical medicine." Election to the AAP is an honor extended to physicians with outstanding credentials in basic or translational biomedical research and is limited to 70 persons per year. The AAP includes about 1200 active members and 700 emeritus and honorary members.
The overarching goals of the AAP include the promotion of professional and social interaction among biomedical scientists, the dissemination of important information related to biomedical science and teaching, the recognition of outstanding, diverse physician-scientists through membership, and the establishment of role models to kindle new generations of high achievers in medicine and medical science.
