» MedChi Leads the Coalition of all Maryland Physicians to Advocate on Behalf of Patients and Quality Care
Advocacy is important because legislators depend on subject matter experts, like you, to create effective policy and legislation. Because health care policy touches everyone, regardless of age, gender, or political leanings, it is critical that physicians are engaged and can educate legislators on the unseen effects of their proposed policies. MedChi is a huge advocate on policy issues including Tort Policy, Scope Policy, Telehealth Policy, and Economic Policy.
