The CUA leadership was among the first in the nation to recognize the need for organized grass roots advocacy on behalf of patients and health policy leadership education forums for urologists.
CUA provides urologists with representation on state and national levels. On a state level, CUA acts as a "watch-dog" vigilantly watching out against attacks on our our freedom to practice and fighting burdensome regulations.
