Emergency providers are the only providers who work 24-7 to see any patient with an acute need, regardless of their ability to pay. You know this, of course.
Does your senator know this? If not, they should, and you could be the one to tell them.
Attend this course to learn about the key advocacy issues for emergency physicians and patients at the state and federal levels. You’ll leave with an action plan for developing a relationship with your legislators and work with your colleagues to advance the critical advocacy agenda for emergency medicine. You’ll learn to how to discuss the importance of emergency medicine and its physicians, talk about key current advocacy issues, identify opportunities for involvement via ACEP, and formulate a plan for developing a relationship with state and federal legislators.
