Patient Leaders Visit Capitol Hill

Last week, patient leaders joined Right Scan Right Time for a Capitol Hill fly-in! These delegates from Alabama, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin had the opportunity to meet with a dozen Senate offices.

The focus of the fly-in was the need to permanently repeal the medical device tax. Patient leaders emphasized how a permanent repeal would improve patient health, propel new advancements in medical imaging technology and promote American innovation.

While opportunities to meet with Senators in-person are invaluable, there are also ways you can help to support our efforts from home! CLICK HERE to send an email to your Senators urging them to permanently repeal the medical device tax.
