Please mark your calendar – the Missouri State Medical Association (MSMA) White Coat Day has been set for Tuesday, March 3. This event is specifically designed for physicians to visit the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City to advocate on behalf of their patients and the practice of medicine.
Legislators will deliver brief remarks on health care legislation beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the first floor rotunda of the Capitol. Physicians are then free to sit in on the legislative sessions, meet with their local legislators, explore the Capitol, and get to know your fellow doctors.
The objective of the event is to fill the Capitol with physicians in white coats to advance our political agenda. Recognizing that it is difficult to schedule a day away from your practice, the rally has been scheduled extra early this year – please save the date and plan to join your fellow physicians in Jefferson City.
Lunch will be provided in the Capitol by MSMA. Registration is open at www.msma.org/white-coat-day.html. You are asked to register in advance so MSMA will have an accurate count for lunch. For more information, contact Heidi Geisbuhler Sutherland at MSMA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
