Physicians from all localities will join forces in the State Capital on May 17th to advocate for their patients and profession during the NY Coalition of Specialty Physicians Annual State Lobby Day. The Coalition is a partnership of surgical and medical organizations committed to battling inappropriate allied health provider expansion legislation and advancing bills of importance to all of medicine.
The day will kick off with a breakfast, legislative briefing and Q&A session in the Empire State Plaza. Immediately following, physicians will meet with their elected representatives in the Senate and Assembly. Attendees will be paired with physicians of other specialties and provided with easy to understand talking points so they can effectively present their arguments and positions.
We hope that you will reaffirm your commitment to your colleagues, your profession and your patients by joining us in Albany on May 17.
