Advocacy & Legislative Events
Invite Your Legislator to Your ED
Why is inviting your senators and representatives to "Visit Your ED" so important? It enables your legislator to witness first-hand how you care for your patients – their constituents – and the problems you face everyday in providing that care. That one-day visit could also make all the difference in how your legislator votes on a bill that may affect your practice.
A legislative visit will benefit you and your legislator because...
- It builds relationships with those voting for issues affecting emergency physicians.
- It allows you to educate your legislator about the specialty.
- It allows your legislator to learn more about your hospital.
- One visit could lead to one "yea" vote that can swing a crucial vote on legislation in PACEP’s favor.
