The 2021 session of the Texas Legislature is under way, and the Texas Medical Association needs your voice to help advance medicine’s key issues at the Capitol.

Beginning Feb. 2, join TMA and the TMA Alliance for a new virtual format of First Tuesdays at the Capitol, scheduled at noon each month through May.

During each virtual meeting, to be held entirely via Zoom, the TMA lobby team will update you on what’s happening at the Capitol, what’s coming up later in the legislative session, and actions you can take to help make our advocacy efforts even more successful.

Although you will not lobby legislators in person on First Tuesdays this legislative session, you still can advocate for medicine’s agenda by participating in a local First Tuesdays in the District through your county medical society and responding to Action Alerts when TMA raises the flag on time-sensitive issues.

Legislators need to hear from you to understand how potential legislation will impact your profession, your patients, and your practice. Your personal stories are informative and impactful, and we need you to share them with your elected officials and their staff. First Tuesdays at the Capitol are the ideal way to learn what the legislature is doing so you can shape your personal stories for maximum impact.

Register today to attend this session’s First Tuesdays at the Capitol noon legislative briefings.
