Assisting public members and the health professional oversight bodies on which they serve
On June 23, 2015, we convened a meeting in Washington, DC to examine the implications of the Supreme Court's “Teeth Whitening” decision for legislatures, regulatory boards, credentialing bodies and professional associations that want to claim immunity from FTC anti-trust oversight.
Since 1987, the Citizen Advocacy Center has been serving the public interest by enhancing the effectiveness and accountability of health professional oversight bodies. We offer training, research and networking opportunities for public members and for the health care regulatory, credentialing, and governing boards on which they serve.
Created as a support program for the thousands of public members serving on health professional boards as representatives of the consumer interest, we soon became a resource for the health professional boards themselves.
