The 2020 Legislative Session adjourned Sine Die on Thursday, March 19 after extending the Session for purposes of passing a budget.
This was indeed a rough and tumble Session with many issues addressed including attempts to, once again, tie your reimbursement for pathology services to a percentage of Medicare which ultimately failed passage. However, one of the most significant issues that House Leadership has pushed unsuccessfully for eight years, the autonomous practice of APRN’s and test and treat allowances for pharmacists, was ultimately passed and immediately signed by the governor.
The health and safety of our FSP members, conference attendees, faculty members, staff, and supporters is our top priority. We are keeping a close eye on the daily developments of COVID-19 and guidelines issued by the United States government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As of now, the FSP's Summer Pathology Conference is proceeding as planned but we will continue to monitor the situation and keep our attendees updated on any necessary changes to the conference such as postponement or cancellation.
We are particularly excited to spotlight Margaret "Meg" Neal, MD, who won the President’s Service award at the FSP's 46th Annual Pathology Conference in Orlando, Florida. President Morton H. Levitt, MD awarded Dr. Neal for her many contributions to the advancement and continued success of the FSP over the last decade under her service. Dr. Neal is quoted saying “The best part of being a pathologist is the requirement for broad ever-changing knowledge base dealing with many unique conditions, the work with many clinical specialties and colleagues, and the close association with other pathologists I work with, all for the best care of our patients.” To read Dr. Neal’s full member spotlight visit the FSP website here.

From Sept. 30: Lung injury associated with vaping — the use of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) — has been recognized in the medical literature, and a case series of such injuries is now published in the Journal. If vaping is the proximal cause of lung injury, the mechanism leading to such injury is not certain. Unlike traditional cigarettes, ENDS use solvents to heat and aerosolize the flavorants (known as “juices”), which consist of various aldehydes and alcohols, and complications can arise as the mixing and aerosolization of these components create new compounds. Moreover, ENDS are increasingly used to deliver cannabis oils and concentrates. READ MORE
