Your patients and your profession need you to be a lobbyist for a day. Mark your calendar now to join the Party of Medicine in Austin for First Tuesdays at the Capitol during the 85th Texas Legislature on Feb. 7, March 7, April 4, and/or May 2, 2017. The March 7 event is designated the official TMA Alliance First Tuesday, as well the young and newly licensed physician event. The April 4 event is dedicated to medical students and residents. Registration is now open.
TMA's comprehensive 2017 legislative agenda advocates what's best for patients and their physicians, from preserving physicians' right to bill for services to improving Medicaid payment rates and reducing red tape and hassles.
If you're traveling to Austin from out of town for First Tuesdays, reserve your room for the Monday before each event at the Doubletree Suites by Hilton Hotel by calling (800) 445-8667. Don't forget to mention you are attending TMA's First Tuesdays at the Capitol event for the special room block rate of $219 for February, March, and April and $209 for May. Hotel rooms in Austin are in demand during legislative sessions, so make your reservations now.
You also can reserve a room online, but make sure to enter the correct group code for your stay (February: FTC, reserve by Jan. 16; March: TAT, reserve by Feb. 13; April: CAP, reserve by March 13; and May: TUE, reserve by April 10).
