In a perfect world the elected official would always come to physicians before taking a stance on a health policy issue. We have important relationships with local patients that choose government legislators, making our real-world input vital to proficient legislators. The future of your practice and specialty can be shaped through advocacy and if we’re not at the negotiating table, we leave ourselves and our patients open to unwanted change.
