Question
Dr Harrop,
I was interested in attending this meeting of the RI
Medical Advisory Board   Workers' Compensation  on the 6/16.
Do you know if it is open to the public to voice concerns?

Answer
It is open to the public, but with a very specific agenda, and comments are not taken from the public unless they are pertinent to the agenda.  You may want to call the adminisitrator (401) 458-3460 to see if your concerns will fit in to the agenda. The open meetings law states that although meetings are open to the public,  we must post an agenda 10 days before the meeting, and we are not allowed by law to deviate from this.
