Virtual MSSNY’S PHYSICIAN ADVOCACY DAY
The format will follow previous years formats, where assembled physicians and allies will hear from legislative leaders in the morning (this year via Zoom), and then have virtual visits with their respective legislators in the afternoon.
With the Governor and the State Legislature needing to create tens of billions of savings to the State Budget, any number of healthcare programs of interest to physicians could be on the table, not to mention concerns with the numerous proposals to inappropriately expand the scope of practice for various n on-physicians as well as numerous proposals to mandate how physicians provide care to their patients.
TUESDAY MARCH 2ND, 2021
Following the morning program, physician and allied groups will meet with legislators and their staff!
- Oppose cuts to Medicaid
- Maintaining adequate supply of PPE
- Oppose inappropriate scope expansion
- Expand Telehealth coverage
- Discuss health concerns with legalizing recreational marijuana
- Reject Unfair Professional Discipline changes
- Reducing prior authorization hassles
- Rejecting burdensom mandates
- Shape the discussion surrounding Single Payor Healthcare
- Preserving opportunities for NY’s medical students and residents

Return to Mammography Care Toolkit
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a nationwide decrease in breast cancer screening. The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) have created a “Return to Mammography Care” toolkit of free, downloadable and customizable resources to explain to women ages 40 and older why and how it is necessary and safe to #ReturnToCare — for yearly mammograms. Access the toolkit here
As a breast radiologist, you are saving lives. But, did you know that as a result of the pause in screening due to COVID-19, more than 35,000 breast cancer diagnoses could be delayed and 5,200 more women may die in the United States over the next decade?
Now, you can help your practice and your referring clinicians reconnect with women ages 40 and older to schedule yearly mammograms postponed by the CDC-recommended shutdown.
The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) have created a “Return to Mammography Care” toolkit of free, downloadable and customizable resources to explain to women ages 40 and older why and how it is necessary and safe to #ReturnToCare — for yearly mammograms.
The toolkit can be accessed in several places: the ACR Breast Imaging Resources, the MammographySavesLives.org Provider Resources and at EndTheConfusion.org.
The ACR strongly encourages you to download these materials and:
- Customize with your branding where indicated.
- Share with your referring clinicians and advise them to send to their patients.
- Place patient materials on your website and in your waiting room.
- Print and include in correspondence with patients and referring providers.
Empower your referring providers to make better screening recommendations. Let’s act together to help our patients #ReturnToCare!
