First Tuesdays at the Capitol


    The Family of Medicine Needs YOU!

    The "White Coat Invasion" has been the key to physicians' successes in the Texas Legislature since the inception of First Tuesdays at the Capitol in 2003. Our senators and representatives listen when their hometown doctors appear in their offices. Our influence is so much greater when physicians and alliance members arrive en masse in the House and Senate galleries. It's time again to bring out Texas medicine's strongest weapon.

    As part of First Tuesdays, you will:
    -make a difference now and for medicine's future.
    -become well-versed on the issues facing medicine in the 2021 session.
    -inform your senator and representative and their aides about these issues.
    -attend committee hearings and House and Senate sessions.

    Registration fees are $25 for each First Tuesday event. Fees are waived for residents and students.
