On Call is the quarterly newsletter of the Alliance of Specialty Medicine.  In the Winter 2020 edition, we lead off with a story on the Alliance’s federal strategy meeting and discuss the specialty docs federal agenda going into the new year.   We also honor Black History Month with, “Skin Cancer is Color Blind”, about the outreach the dermatological surgeons are doing with communities of color to make sure they are aware of the risks of skin cancer and also ways to detect and prevent it.  Patient outreach is also the focus of our story on the retinal specialists and their education campaign on age-related macular degeneration.  The gastroenterologists celebrate a coverage victory for patients needing colorectal cancer screening and finally, we welcome the newest Alliance member, the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
