It was a week of slow-moving negotiations on the budget process and of faster action on several healthcare-related bills. NCMS Director of Legislative Relations, Sue Ann Forrest, MPA, shares her summary of all of this week’s legislative developments that could impact you and your patients.

In addition, Sue Ann invites you to attend “The Importance of Grassroots Advocacy – How You Can Make a Difference,” on Sept. 1 at 6:00pm.
