As part of the Arkansas Society of Pathologists community, you'll be able to give back as well as benefit from the collective knowledge of your peers as we work together to enhance and protect the practice of pathology and patient care.
If we want to continue doing what is best for patients and pathology, it is essential that we have a strong community to communicate with state and local legislators on key issues such as scope of practice and network adequacy. After all, we are the experts in pathology, and it is our responsibility to share our knowledge with government leaders and help them make good decisions. Your voice helps us make a difference.
