Alaska Governor's Newsletter February 2019

Alaska Chapter Banner

Julie A. McCormick, MD, FACP, ACP Governor

Julie A. McCormick, MD, FACP, ACP Governor

Happy 2019! First newsletter of the New Year - I just wanted to update members on our recent activities and upcoming events.


Health and Public Policy Committee

Our Health and Public Policy Committee has been meeting over the winter. Progress on connecting with Cathy Giessel, President of the Senate, discussing local ACP concerns. She will make us aware of important healthcare bills so that we can be more involved. Discussed importance of WWAMI training and funding, opiate crisis and impact on prescribing physicians, and possibly making hospitals drug free zones. Very productive meeting. If you would like to get involved please let me or Julie Lake know and will let you know next meeting information. We are currently tracking budget concerns - so stay tuned to potential ways to get involved.
