TMA IN ACTION
Get ready for First Tuesdays at the Capitol returns Feb. 3. by reading TMA’s 2015 legislative agenda, Healthy Vision 2020: Caring for patients in a time of change, Second Edition. Read the entire document or the summary. Bring your white coat to Austin every first Tuesday during the session — Feb. 3, March 3, April 7, and May 5. Our senators and representatives listen when their hometown doctors appear in their offices. Our influence is so much greater when physicians and alliance members arrive en masse in the House and Senate galleries. It’s time again to bring out Texas medicine’s strongest weapon. Mark your calendar for the 2015 First Tuesdays at the Capitol and register today.
