Register by April 2 for Advocacy Day 2024

Please join NYSANA for Advocacy Day on May 7, 2024! This year we will target key lawmakers in the Higher Education Committees in both the Assembly and Senate. In order to be most effective, we will limit the number of members in each meeting, which means that only a select number of nurse anesthesia residents will be able to attend meetings. Beyond meetings, there may be additional opportunities to celebrate and rally in the Legislative Office Building. More details will be available by April 5.

This disparity manifests as decreased access to healthcare, increased prevalence of preventable medical conditions, and increased morbidity and mortality related to mental health when compared to the general population.
