Thank You, Colleagues

I would be remiss if I did not thank my friends and colleagues nationwide who contributed to our GoFundMe page to initiate our pre-litigation investigation of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the ABIM Foundation. While I was upgrading a DDDR pacemaker to a biventricular ICD today, I received a text from a colleague that we had reached our funding goal for this initial phase.

I cannot express my gratitude enough. Thank you all.

It is very reaffirming to know that others feel as I do about Maintenance of Certification and what it has done to physician autonomy, morale, and even our right to work. I know that the dollars contributed could have been used for so many other things. I hope you will soon see that it your money was well spent.

But as Winston Churchill famously said:

"Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Thanks again -

-Wes
