Legislation and Public Affairs

The key to health care and public affairs legislation is teamwork and communication. The involvement of individual physicians and their spouses is vital to the success of any grassroots advocacy efforts. Better than any professional lobbyist in Washington, Alliance members give federal legislators the most accurate picture of the effect that current legislation has on patients and families in the United States. The AMA Alliance makes a difference by providing the resources and networking opportunities.
