NEITHER RAIN, NOR SNOW, NOR DARK OF NIGHT KEEP US AWAY FROM FIRST TUESDAYS
Although snow and ice kept many physicians from North and West Texas at home, more than 200 physicians, medical students, and TMA Alliance members participated in the first “white coat invasion” of the season. Check out the photos on TMA’s Facebook page. The budget crisis — especially for Medicaid and mental health — was the biggest topic of conversation. Scope of practice came up quite frequently in our talks with lawmakers, especially because the advanced practice nurses were swarming the capitol the day before we got there. Legislators of both parties told physicians how important it is to make their voices heard on all these issues. Register now for the March 1 First Tuesdays at the Capitol. And keep your calendar clear for April 5 and May 3.
