COME TO FIRST, FIRST TUESDAY NEXT WEEK - FEB. 5
Next Tuesday’s first First Tuesdays at the Capitol for 2013 marks the 10-year anniversary of the nation’s best grassroots physician lobbying program. Launched as part of our drive for health care liability reforms in 2003, First Tuesdays has become an integral part of our legislative advocacy operations. State lawmakers look forward to the “white coat invasion” four times each session. Hundreds of TMA and TMA Alliance members have become veteran lobbyists for a day, now quite comfortable calling on their representatives and senators or testifying before a committee. Medical students have used First Tuesdays as a springboard to greater involvement with TMA as today’s young physicians. Put a big Texas star on your calendar for Feb. 5, March 5, April 2, and May 7. Watch the short video, then sign up online or contact your county medical society.
