TMA LEADERS ENGAGE CONGRESS ON HEALTH SYSTEM REFORM, LIABILITY, MEDICARE
I was proud to be part of the 23 Texas physicians, alliance members, medical students, and TMA staff who stormed Capitol Hill as part of the AMA’s National Advocacy Conference. We met with almost every member of the Texas delegation, applauded Rep. Michael Burgess, MD (R-Lewisville), for filing a Texas-style liability reform, and shared the work of our Select Committee on Health System Reform. I urge every physician to monitor the health system reform developments from Washington and join us in fighting for patient-friendly reforms that are good for medicine as well.
