We need your help!

Representatives Richard Smith (district 134) and Calvin Smyre (district 135) are serving on the Special House Committee on Access to Quality Healthcare. We need them to call up HB 409 to review and vote!

Richard Smith: 404-656-5141
Calvin Smyre: 404-656-0109

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!
