ME AND MY DOCTOR CAMPAIGN TELLS CONGRESS TO GET HEALTH CARE REFORM RIGHT

Materials to help you get your patients involved in the health system reform debate will be in the mail to your office this week. TMA’s Me and My Doctor campaign materials include posters, lapel stickers, and preaddressed postcards for your patients to send to President Obama and members of Congress. They call on Congress not to rush reform legislation, and to fix what’s wrong with our current system but keep what’s good. The program directs patients to the Me and My Doctor Web site, where they can find up-to-the-minute news about the health care debate, easy ways to send electronic messages to Congress, and forms for them to share their thoughts and concerns with us or write a letter to the editor. (Don’t like the grammar in the title of the campaign? Just think of the old song, “Me and My Shadow.” We think it’s an effective way to put the patient first.)
