Thank you all for coming to our Spring 2019 meeting at Gracie’s! We enjoyed a wonderful talk on advocacy given by Dr. Andrew Rosenberg, Chair of Anesthesiology at NYU and the current Vice President of Scientific Affairs at the ASA. We then held a brief business meeting with updates on RISA activities presented by Dr. Herb Chen and a comprehensive legislative report from Mr. Pat Quinlan. We elected our new secretary Dr. Alexander Cohen (congratulations!) and discussed our grave concerns regarding the acquisition of Care New England by Partners.
