According to Randall Madry, PCC Executive Director, “PCC is excited to offer these webinars because the content will be useful not only for physicians, office managers and policymakers, but also for patients who want to make informed decisions about their health and screening options.”

PCC Board Chair Steven Morris, MD, notes, “The challenges facing private practices and individuals seeking the highest quality screening are considerable. The clinician wants to provide a safe and comfortable environment, but barriers to screening, anesthetic reimbursement policies and misrepresentations by media pose a number of obstacles that can be overcome.”
