Attend the WSMA Legislative Summit and help us turn WSMA policy into action.
At this year's Summit, Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Washington's chief legal officer, will join us, along with other top Washington state officials and health care leaders, as we kick off an action-packed day on the Hill dedicated to advancing priority issues for physicians, physician assistants, and patients.
We know your time is valuable: We'll provide lunch and we'll handle scheduling your (optional) personal meetings with your state legislative delegation in the afternoon.
This free event provides a unique opportunity to make your voice heard by the people who are deliberating the policies, laws, and regulations in Olympia that impact the practice of medicine in Washington. You'll also have a chance to meet Washington's next generation of physicians, as we welcome medical student delegations from Washington State University's Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, University of Washington's School of Medicine, and Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences to the Summit.
The 2020 Summit will focus on WSMA's top advocacy priorities, including*:
Our legislative team will be on hand to brief you on the relevant bills needing your support and will provide messaging and tips on meeting with your legislators. Clinician expertise is crucial in informing legislators' decision-making—lending your support to one or more of these issues during the Summit can make a real difference.
*Issues subject to change, given the unpredictable nature of the state legislative session. The WSMA will keep you informed of any updates to our priority issues.
