In addition to presentations on current advocacy efforts in the states, the forum will include a case study on state legislation allowing PTs to order imaging, a session on infringement from other providers, and 2 luncheon speakers: Washington State Rep Laurie Jenkins and Mark McClellan, MD, PhD, director of the health care innovation and value initiative at the Brookings Institution.
