The ACS New York Chapter is actively working to add the surgeon voice to the major legislative debates on issues including access to care, single payer health care, tobacco purchase, recreational marijuana in addition to many other bills.
With your support, the Chapter is positioned to promote and represent the viewpoints of the surgeon community before State and Federal legislative, regulatory and executive agencies. The Chapter sends alerts and online tools to help you respond quickly to elected officials and educate them on the impact of their policies. Moreover, Chapter staff can assist you in developing personal relationships with elected officials as well as provide forums with Chapter leadership to uncover prevailing issues and address concerns.
What would have happened in the state if the Chapter was not in existence and could not amplify the surgeon’s voice?
