State lawmakers will gather once more this month, as a new session of the Tennessee General Assembly begins. The mountain of bills up for consideration will include legislation that will affect health and medicine. One will take mental illness into account in criminal sentencing. Other address suicide prevention. And will Medicaid expansion see the light of day in 2018?
Surgeon and State Senator Richard Briggs has sponsored medical legislation in previous sessions, and will do so again this year. He and Dr. Carole Myers discuss health-related bills in this 2018 kickoff edition of HealthConnections.
