Grassroots group of physicians rallies broad support for masking, universal mandate

“We as a group have been able to rally a lot of other national medical organizations, and also non-health care organizations, to put out statements that a national mask mandate is extremely important,” said Jain, who also hosts Healio’s Oncology Overdrive podcast. “We rallied our friends and colleagues across the country and many organizations have echoed the same sentiment, with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies [CMSS], the Association of American Medical Colleges and even retail associations coming out in support of a masking mandate.”
