American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Board of Governors Health Policy and Advocacy Workgroup

The Health Policy and Advocacy Workgroup identifies public policy issues and concerns affecting surgeons and their patients and identifies those on which the College should focus its attention and resources. In addition the workgroup develops action plans to address issues, expand and monitor mechanisms by which the College makes surgeons, patients and the public aware of our health policies and agendas, and develops and maintains mechanisms by which legislative and regulatory issues can be addressed in a timely and effective manner.

Questions regarding the Workgroup can be directed to Emily Kalata, Manager, Board of Governors, at or 312.202.5360.
