Christopher Gribbin was recently installed as the 225th president of the Medical Society of New Jersey at its annual meeting.
Gribbin has served as a member of MSNJ’s board of trustees since 2010.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Gribbin as the 225th president of the Medical Society of New Jersey,” said Larry Downs, CEO of MSNJ. “As the oldest professional society in the nation, we rely on a strong base of physician members to continue our advocacy efforts. Under Dr. Gribbin’s leadership, we are certain our society will remain the voice for physicians across the state and help further shape the health care landscape in New Jersey for generations to come.”
Gribbin practices diagnostic and interventional radiology at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Saint Peter’s University Hospital, and is the co-chief of interventional radiology and co-founder of the Pediatric Multidisciplinary Vascular Clinic at Saint Peter’s University Hospital.
“Legislative advocacy, both in our state and nationally, is a core mission of MSNJ,” Gribbin said. “One of our main jobs as physician advocates is to work to remove burdens, so that we can spend more time doing what we do best — delivering great care to our patients. Ultimately, all physicians have the same goal in mind: delivering the promises of modern medicine to our patients as safely and effectively as we can. As we move towards population health-based approaches to care, MSNJ continues to be a supporter for physician leadership and a strong voice for both physicians and patients throughout the state.”
