“I have been a member of the SCSA for more than 25 years. We really started to come into our stride
after we organized our society with professional management, bylaws, and a leadership team. Our
society has done important things since then, not least of which is always advocating for patient safety. I
am proud to have been a very active member of the SCSA, and while I retired from practice a few years
ago, I have always been and continue to be involved, including testifying to our state legislature, on
scope of practice issues concerning the efforts of all non MD/DOs, especially CRNAs, practicing outside
of their training.”
