Dear Texas AAPS members,
We are excited to announce TxAAPS Capitol Day March 1, 2017 in Austin!
Click here for locations and schedule.
It will be a great opportunity for you and fellow AAPS colleagues to meet with your representatives in both houses of the state legislature and share your views on health policy and how it affects your ability to practice medicine.
Now more than ever, it is important that you develop a relationship with your own representatives as well as those in nearby districts. Your patient population may come from other districts, so your sphere of influence is broad.
We will provide more details as the time nears but need to start collecting a count of who is available.
Do you know what legislative districts you’re in? If not you can look that information up here: http://www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/.Our top priority in Austin this year is MOC reform. We will also strongly support legislation to allow in-office dispense of prescription drugs by physicians. Please share with us your wish list for action to protect physicians and patients.
Plan ahead and make sure March 1 is available for you to be in Austin. We look forward to seeing you there!
All for the Patient,
Sheila Page, DO
