ACG has created a “Take Action Toolkit” to help you speak out for – or against – the issues that matter most to you and your practice. ACG has also compiled a wealth of resources to help keep members up-to-date on the latest legislative and regulatory actions that impact the gastroenterology practice, as well as tools to help you manage your practice in light of these changes and take action on important issues.
