We are completing week three of the Florida Legislative Session and this has been a very active time for FSP. Many bills have been filed impacting your practice of pathology. Most importantly, legislation was filed which would have capped pathology reimbursement at 200 percent of the Medicare rate. The FSP Executive Committee was alerted to this legislation, HB 1317 and SB 1790, the day it was filed and your FSP president addressed this in his update several weeks ago.
It is an honor to serve as the next President of the Florida Society of Pathologists. I would like to thank our outgoing President, Dr. Antonio Martinez for his outstanding leadership and service to the FSP Board and the entire membership over the past two years. I look forward to serving alongside the new slate of Executive Committee Members and furthering our mission to provide valuable educational and networking opportunities and advocacy support for our members.
We just concluded another outstanding conference on Feb. 22-24 in Orlando, Florida where we saw over 230 of our colleagues join together to hear practical yet updated pathology topics from some of the brightest minds in our field. Educational topics spanned urology, dermatopathology, breast pathology, hematopathology, physician wellness, digital pathology and more. For the first time ever, attendees were given the opportunity to select from concurrent breakout sessions to choose a specialty read slide session of their choice. For a full rundown of the conference and to see event pictures be sure to check out the FSP website here. READ MORE
The FSP’s 45th Annual Pathology Conference took place this past weekend in Orlando, Florida with over 230 pathologists in attendance and 43 exhibitors and supporters. The educational sessions were widely received, with riveting lectures from Dr. Mahul Amin, Dr. Eric Glassy, Dr. Steven Billings and Dr. Marilyn Bui. The breakout read slides sessions were well attended and attendees gave positive feedback about the additional educational opportunities the breakouts provided. A special lecture was given on Physician Wellness by Dr. Rebekah Bernard which equipped attendees with tools and techniques to reduce physician burnout and improve wellness. To all those that attended we thank you for joining us and to any members that could not attend we hope you will join us for our next conference, the Summer Pathology Conference taking place on July 13-14 in Ft.
