  • Surgical Care Coalition Launch

    The ACS is excited to announce, along with 11 other surgical associations, the launch of the Surgical Care Coalition. The coalition represents more than 150,000 surgeons working across the county with a common goal of improving the quality of life of patients by preserving their choice of surgical care.

    The coalition is coming together now to stop planned cuts to Medicare payments that threaten patient's access to surgical care. The coalition will focus on advocating to Congress to prevent the cuts and preserve care for patients. You will be hearing more from the coalition as January 1 approaches. Visit the website for more information.
  • Bulletin Brief

    Be sure to read Bulletin Brief, the new newsletter that replaces both ACS COVID-19 Updates and the weekly ACS NewsScope that you traditionally have received on Thursday night. Combining all the elements of both newsletters with new content, Bulletin Brief delivers updates on important advances the ACS and other stakeholders are making to help you provide optimal care for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. It also includes the latest information on other ACS activities, programs, and news.
