From the Desk of

President Dr. Michael S. Firstenberg

The global events of the past year have challenged every aspect of society – none more so than the health care systems of the world. While the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating, the scientific and front-line health care providers have, without a doubt, risen to the difficulties and continue to go above and beyond. ACAIM continues to strive to partner globally with those who share in the Mission that working together we can all build a stronger and more unified foundation to move forward. By bringing together physician -scientists -educators from around the world, we aim to help support and build those partnerships for a common goal that the strengths of a Team will always exceed those of an individual. We must all learn from the challenges and difficulties that we have faced, both personally and professionally, and move forward so that we can be ready for what comes next. Nevertheless, the journey that we are all on is never-ending. On behalf of all the ACAIM membership and leadership, we welcome the partnership and collective engagement as we all try to make this journey together.
