First Tuesdays at the Capitol

  • Alt Tag

    Legislators need to hear from you – their physician, medical student, and alliance constituents – to understand how proposed legislation can potentially impact the practice of medicine in Texas.

    How to plan for First Tuesdays:

    1. Register for one or all of the First Tuesdays dates.
    2. Make your travel arrangements. Check with your county medical society before making travel plans; staff may have arranged group transportation. Be sure to pack your white coat!
    3. Reserve your room at the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel for the Monday before each First Tuesdays event by clicking on the information at right. Hotel rooms in Austin are on demand during legislative sessions, so make your reservation now!
    4. Make an appointment with your legislators, and know who represents you. Unsure how to make an appointment? Reach out to your county medical society for help.
