Andres Abreu, MD
Dr. Abreus term as Assembly Representative had expired but he is now one of your Councilor Members. Dr. Abreu continues his role as Membership Chair which put in place many incentives to encourage MAPP membership. Part of those changes included the development of a marketing piece. A copy of the membership flyer can be found HERE.
Jeffrey Barkin, MD, DFAPA
Dr. Barkin served as former MAPP EC President and Treasurer, has agreed to serve as MAPP’s Public Affairs Chair.
