NYSSOS Immediate Past President John DiPreta, MD made two important visits to state legislative allies this week to recognize their strong leadership on critical musculoskeletal policy initiatives, and to accept a special message from the lawmakers marking NYSSOS’ 50th Anniversary.
Assemblymember John T. McDonald III, RPh, (pictured in the blue suit) stands with Dr. DiPreta and holds the 2022 NYSSOS “Advocate of the Year” award, presented to him for his work in helping to ensure all patients have access to musculoskeletal care.
Senator Neil Breslin (grey suit and red tie), who co-sponsored with Assemblymember McDonald prior authorization reform legislation known as the “gold card” bill, presents to Dr. DiPreta a New York State Senate Proclamation honoring NYSSOS for its 50 years of service to the musculoskeletal community. Assemblymember McDonald also presented a New York State Assembly Citation to mark the NYSSOS milestone.
NYSSOS is grateful to Senator Breslin and Assemblymember McDonald for their leadership and support, and we look forward to a productive year of sound and effective health care policy in 2023.
