For the last 15 to 21 years the CTSMA Public Policy Committee has worked tirelessly to change the laws in Connecticut and nationally to recognize the value of the CMA(AAMA). We have made gains nationally with Meaningful Use but we still struggle in Connecticut to be able to practice to the full scope of our profession. Each year we get closer and closer to reach our goal of being able to give vaccinations in the State of Connecticut.
