What is Cornell's MAP?

Cornell has granted medical amnesty to Cornell students since 2002. However, in July, 2012, Cornell's Medical Amnesty Protocol was broadened, renamed the Good Samaritan Protocol and brought into closer alignment with NY State's Good Samaritan Law.

Get the details on Cornell's NEW Good Samaritan Protocol.
