As a member of the AMA RUC panel, I am passionate about the influence we have on payment policies and encourage every member of the ACR to let their voices be heard. Although it may seem disheartening, we cannot give up the fight for our profession and our patients. We must continue the fight through our influence by keeping our positions within the AMA.
