A Media Year in Review

ASA Monitor 03 2013, Vol.77, 10-11.
2012 marked a busy year for anesthesiology in the news. As chair of the Committee on Communications, I saw several topics make local and national headlines, including drug shortages, prescription drug overdoses, scope-of-practice issues and the meningitis outbreak. Special thanks to all members who served as spokespeople throughout the year to share ASA’s perspective with consumer and trade media outlets. These spokespeople helped advance the specialty of anesthesiology to the general public.
Over the past year, the ASA Advocacy and Public Relations teams aligned efforts to develop and maintain ties with key health care reporters. As a result, ASA became a go-to resource and expert for several media outlets, including Becker’s ASC Review, New York Times, Politico and the Wall Street Journal.
