Save the Dates for First Tuesdays at the Capitol

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 March 7, April 4, and/or May 2, 2017. The March 7 event is designated the official TMA Alliance First Tuesday, as well as 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.

Hotel rooms in Austin are in high demand during legislative sessions. Sleeping rooms at TMA's special room rate are sold out for the March, and April events. Reserve your room now for the Monday before May event at the Doubletree Suites by Hilton Hotel. Call (800) 445-8667 and mention you're attending TMA's First Tuesdays at the Capitol event for the special room rate of $219 for March and $209 for May. 

Or reserve a hotel room online, but make sure to enter the correct group code for your stay:
