    Congratulations on a well deserved victory.
    You will serve the “House of Medicine” as you did in your role as Past President of NCMS well. It is wonderful to see a fellow North Carolinian elected. Good luck and we at TIPS (Triangle Indian-American Physicians Society) wish you the very best!
