New Lawmakers Reception Builds Relationships

Thursday, February 19, 2015

On February 18, 2015, the Michigan State Medical Society hosted its New Lawmakers Reception bringing our membership in direct contact with our legislators. The reception was an incredible opportunity to educate legislators about the issues physicians face in this challenging environment.

MSMS members spoke to the legislators about scope of practice, auto no-fault, Graduate Medical Education funding, and maintenance of certification reform, among other issues.

Attendees included: Senator Tonya Schuitmaker; Senator Margaret O'Brien; Senator Peter MacGregor; Senator Curtis Hertel, Jr.; Representative Mike Callton; Representative Edward Canfield, DO; Representative Jim Tedder; Representative Bill LaVoy; Representative Tom Cochran; Representative Marcia Hovey-Wright; and former Senator Roger Kahn, MD.
