January 4, 2019 Your Chapter in Action! NYACP Announces the Steven Walerstein, MD, MACP Advocacy Internship The Chapter is honoring the memory of Steven Walerstein, MD, MACP, former Governor and leader of NYACP who passed late last year by changing the very popular and educational Advocacy Internship to the “Steven Walerstein, MD, MACP, Advocacy Internship.” This internship, which began almost 16 years ago, allows between 4 and 6 medical students and residents to spend a month rotating in Albany with our Executive Director researching policy, reviewing proposed legislation, meeting with regulators and legislators and understanding how to best represent patient interests as healthcare policy is formulated. To date we have had 45 students and residents rotate through this program, with 5 more scheduled for 2019.
