Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014 – a huge election year resplendent with opportunities to meet legislative candidates and regulatory board members. This is your year to share your story about what it means to be a physician anesthesiologist and form working relationships with elected officials that will last for years to come.
Good advocacy begins with good relationships; it is usually easier to talk about serious issues with a friend than with a stranger, and discussing legislative issues is no different. Forming working relationships with lawmakers is as easy as setting up a meeting at their office and offering yourself as a source of information on health care policy.
