On May 2-4, 2016, we saw first-hand that the College of American Pathologists (CAP)’s Policy Meeting (2016 CAP Policy Meeting - College of American Pathologists) is a must-attend event for pathologists. Seven Florida pathologists who are members of the CAP House of Delegates and the Florida Society of Pathologists attended this meeting. These included Drs. Marilyn Bui, Prudence Smith, Anne Champeaux, Jim Zhai, Jeffrey Smith, Oleksandr Kryvenko, and Peter Johnson. The meeting provided our Florida delegation with a unique opportunity to advocate for pathology and laboratory medicine, while also briefing us on key regulatory issues impacting the specialty and how to best advocate for legislative solutions to the problems that we all face.
