LEGISLATIVE INSIGHT, CHOOSING WISELY TOP FALL CONFERENCE AGENDA
We’ll unveil the second edition of TMA’s Healthy Vision 2020 document at 2014 TMA Fall Conference as we jumpstart our preparations for the 2015 sessions of the Texas Legislature and U.S. Congress. The conference, Sept. 12-13 at Hyatt Lost Pines between Austin and Bastrop, will feature updates from State Senate Finance Committee Chair Jane Nelson (R-Flower Mound), Evan Smith of The Texas Tribune, and TMA Council on Legislation Chair Dawn Buckingham, MD, on health care and legislation affecting Texas physicians. Donald E. Wesson, MD, immediate past chair of the ABIM Foundation Board of Trustees, will tell you about the Choosing Wisely campaign and how it promotes conversations between physicians and patients to ensure the right care is delivered at the right time. We also have Mike Deegan, MD, clinical professor for health care leadership and innovation at The University of Texas at Dallas, speaking on how Texas physicians can increase their community leadership. Plus … some special surprises. It will be a great way to get your TMA juices flowing again. Can’t wait to see you there.
