WILL YOU COME TO FIRST TUESDAYS TOMORROW
It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is already the first Tuesday in March, which means it’s time for TMA’s second First Tuesdays at the Capitol for 2011. It’s not too late for you to make plans to be a lobbyist for a day. We need every voice to explain to state legislators why they need to avoid Medicaid and public health cuts, stop unsafe scope of practice expansions, keep a strong but fair Texas Medical Board, and protect our 2003 liability reforms and the state’s ban on the corporate practice of medicine. I’ve been meeting with key lawmakers on these and other issues, and they’re very receptive to our legislative agenda when we take the time to talk with them. Please join your colleagues and TMA Alliance members from around the state — and three busloads of students from The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) at Galveston — in our white coat invasion.
