First Tuesdays at the Capitol

Lobbying your legislator has never been easier… or safer. Join TMA and TMA Alliance on the first Tuesday of the month (February through May 2021) for a virtual legislative update and trip to the Capitol. TMA’s lobby team will outline issues important to medicine and actions you can take now to make a difference.

Our senators and representatives listen when their hometown physicians contact their offices by text, email, phone or via Zoom. They want to hear from you and learn what's happening in patient care in your district.

Attend TMA's virtual First Tuesdays and learn how to:

  • Make a difference now and for medicine's future.
  • Become well-versed on the issues facing medicine in the 2021 session.
  • Inform your senator and representative and their aides about these issues.
