As the only advocacy organization focused on dermatologic surgery, the ASDSA has positioned itself as an invaluable resource for legislators, regulators and other policymakers when considering issues important to dermatologic surgery. When considering legislation or regulation on issues such as indoor tanning, medspas or scope of practice, ASDSA resources can help policymakers understand the proposals before them and vote in the interests of patients and their constituents. To the left are some resources to serve as a starting point. If you are a policymaker and wish to receive technical assistance on an issue under the purview of dermatologic surgery, please feel free to contact us here.
