One of the ways to become active in the NPA is to join a National Committee.
There’s something for everyone and we can use your expertise and enthusiasm.
Contact the committee chairs at the emails below for more information or to join.
Chair: Mark Ryan, MD (NPA Vice-President of Communications)
We are helping to get the word out about the NPA, through the media in traditional and non-traditional ways. We need creative thinkers, excellent writers, public relations gurus, and others interested in marketing and relationship-building. Contact us to become a member of our exciting committee.
Co-Chairs: Bethany Picker, MD and Ken Frisof, MD (NPA Vice-President of Policy)
The Policy Committee works on policy papers for the NPA’s priority issues. These papers are living documents for public consumption that lay out problems in our health care system and offer up the NPA’s solutions. These positions will establish our identity and shape our political activities. We are beginning to mobilize smaller groups of members as pertinent issues arise in local government or as we target specific federal legislators. If you would like to help us with our policy papers or help organize at the local level, please contact us.
