NSPC Physicians Attend 2017 ASIPP Capitol Hill Legislative Session in D.C.

American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) scheduled a Washington Legislative Session on September 12-13, 2017 at Capitol Hill, Washington DC. ASIPP members from across the country, including our NSPC physicians, attended the conference to hear speeches and meet with Senators and Representatives.

Never in ASIPP’s history has it been more important for our members to get involved in advocacy efforts. Our specialty has been gravely affected by severe coverage cuts.” – ASIPP
