We are excited & honored to announce that the NYACP Early Career Physicians Task Force has been upgraded to a committee!  We thank you NYACP Executive Committee! This Committee has been instrumental in putting together successful programs for our Early Career Chapter members. We will continue to offer pertinent mentoring programs for Residents and Medical Students. Our goals are to collaborate and promote mentorship, leadership, and innovation and develop opportunities for our team to grow and prosper. We are proud to announce that we have created a new position: Vice Chair for ECPC, and it is our privilege to share that our own Dr. Marc Braunstein has accepted the position.  
We want to wholeheartedly thank & express our deepest gratitude to Dr. Ankita Sagar for leading the Early Career Physicians Task Force for many years and guiding us on the path to recruiting new programs, such as the Women in Medicine Series. Dr. Sagar is stepping down as Chair; however, she will remain a valuable member of this Committee.
