Recently the TACT trial has shown some benefits of chelation as safe and effective therapy for heart and vascular patients. It's about time but, it is a significant beginning.
This is a great era for continued growth and expansion. We have over 130 members, and growing. I am happy to see senior doctors nurturing successors. Others are bringing in associate physicians and some are utilizing physician extenders. Then there is an increasing number of young physicians in our networks just putting out their IM shingle. We are providing sustainable goods, services and jobs for our communities.
We have the upcoming conference this spring with Conrad as our chair. Richard Plumb will direct our advanced metals lead-in followed by Yin/Yang: The Marriage Between Conventional and Innovative Medicine .While in Washington, Gretchen and other friends from the Alliance for Natural Health will assist us in coordinating meetings with key political figures who are beneficial to our cause.
I am so thankful to serve my patients, community and ICIM and be a part of the great happenings in our profession.
