Fall 2018 Issue

Commonwealth Strategy Group
On August 21, PSV hosted UVA residents who met with representatives from PSV and Commonwealth Strategy Group, PSV's government relations team. We discussed several legislative, regulatory and policy highlights, including Medicaid expansion, nurse practitioner independent practice, medical cannabis and pharmaceutical processors, and new requirements for hospitals providing inpatient psychiatric services involving toxicology screenings and admissions. We shared how important and easy it is to get involved in PSV and the policy advocacy process.
We were joined by special guest Delegate Dave Toscano (D-Charlottesville), the Democratic Leader of the House of Delegates, who offered his perspective as a legislator and answered questions. He talked about the importance of state government in our daily lives and the impact state policy has on healthcare providers and patients. Del. Toscano thanked the residents and UVA for their work and service, and encouraged them to contact him to share their medical and healthcare expertise to inform state policy. PSV thanks UVA, the residents, and Del. Toscano for a great conversation!
