Look here for an update on our advocacy efforts at the local, state, and national levels!
Through nonpartisan political advocacy, the society will represent and support the best interests of Nebraska neurological care providers and neuroscientists as they strive to provide state-of-the-art neurologic care across the state.
Dr. Geetanjali Rathore of Children’s Nebraska will be taking over as the NNS Advocacy Chairperson and will be the new contact person for any neurology advocacy questions.
In October 2023, Dr. Laura Danielson met with Representative Bacon’s office to discuss H.R. 2639 Electrodiagnostic Medicine Patient Protection and Fraud Elimination in her role as the Nebraska State Liaison for the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM).
In February 2023, Dr. Laura Danielson of CHI, Dr. Geetanjali Rathore of Children’s Nebraska, and Dr. Peter Soh of UNMC were the Nebraska representatives for the AAN Neurology on the Hill in Washington D.C.
NNS Members are strongly encouraged to contact the NNS Advocacy Committee with any questions or concerns about upcoming legislation which may impact the care of patients with neurological disorders.
