  A departing note


Month Year
Originally published in CAP TODAY

P. Ridgway Gilmer Jr., MD

Just prior to CAP TODAY press time, your "LAP News" editor learned this is his final issue after serving 11 years (1990-2001). Desiree Carlson, MD, a member of the Commission on Laboratory Accreditation, will take over as the commission's scribe beginning next year. Watch for my successor's work in the February 2002 issue.

I am deeply grateful to the CAP for having so enriched my professional, academic, and personal life. Longtime membership in the CAP official family has brought equally long-lasting relationships with members and staff. Six years on the Board of Governors (1985-1991) forged particularly strong bonds among us all.

I mention this to encourage younger colleagues to pursue part of their career goals within the CAP. Find a niche; make your talents known.

Best wishes to my colleagues and the staff who continue the work and preserve the professional image of this incredible organization.
