This August 6-9, ASA physician leaders and staff represented the society at the National Conference of State Legislatures’ (NCSLs) 43rd annual Legislative Summit in Boston.
Since its inception in 1975, NCSL has become one of the largest bipartisan organizations of state lawmakers in the country. It serves state lawmakers and legislative staff throughout the United States with policy research and technical assistance. Each year, NCSL’s Legislative Summit offers the opportunity for state legislators and staff to meet and exchange ideas on important state topics.
More than 4,000 state legislators, international legislators, legislative staff, government officials, business representatives and agency decision-makers attended the summit, which offered policy sessions on topics from fixing health care, Medicaid, budgets, the opioid abuse crises, health policy goals, and more. Legislative Summit attendees also had the chance to visit a wide variety of the more than 200 exhibitors in the exhibition hall at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
