Remember Eight, at Eight, on the Eighth

Want to learn how the 2011 legislative session affects you and your patients? Then remember these three numbers: 8, 8, and 8. On June 8 at 8 pm, you can learn what actions legislators took on medicine's top eight issues.

TMA President C. Bruce Malone, MD, will call you at your home telephone number and invite you to stay on the line for TMA's Tele-2011 Legislative Victory Update. For the next 45 minutes, Dr. Malone and TMA's lobby team will discuss these eight issues:

  1. 2012-13 state budget;
  2. Employment protections;
  3. Texas Medical Board reform;
  4. Scope of practice expansions;
  5. Health system reform;
  6. Workforce;
  7. Public health; and
  8. Health insurance reform.

You may ask questions after each topic and use your phone to participate in a survey. And, the best part, you will earn 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for your time (providing you stay on the line for the entire program).

If you prefer that we call you on your cell or office telephone, please contact the TMA Knowledge Center by telephone at (800) 880-7955 or by e-mail  by Friday, June 3, and let us know. We hope to talk to you on June 8.

You also can learn more about the 2011 legislative session on TMA's website.
