Call to Action!

Posted 25 days ago by Ashley Blackmon

We need your help! If you are in Representative Spencer Frye's district (Athens, district 118), please call him at 404-656-0265 and tell him to hear and vote YES to HB 409. This bill will allow APRNs to order advanced imaging such as CT/MRI without an MD signature which is important for increasing access to care! APRNs can already order CT/MRI in emergency settings.

APRNs are not interpreting the images but they are using the information interpreted by radiologists to help in screening for breast and lung cancers, etc. Please do this today! Thank you!
