The Role of State Societies in Today’s Health Care Environment
Dr. Anthony Lee was published in the September 2013 issue of The Physiatrist. In his article, Dr. Lee encourages his fellow physiatrists to join their state Physical Medicine & Rehab associations as well as the national American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, reminding care providers that while the AAPM&R is the leader in national advocacy, the value of state PM&R societies for grassroots advocacy on legislation, particularly when it comes to health care regulation, should not be overlooked.
Selected as a Phoenix Magazine Top Doc for the 8th year in a row, Dr. Lee, along with Dr. Wolff, is a well-respected member in his field, recognized for providing high quality care to his patients, while helping to advance the discipline, including reminding his fellow physiatrists about the value of their leadership in their state PM&R associations. His hope is that through this simple act, the quality of the whole profession will improve.
