White Coat Wednesdays: A Way to Get Involved in Legislative Advocacy

As the next legislative sessions approach, members are encouraged to sign up for White Coat Wednesdays, a NCMS program that gives its members the opportunity to advocate for their profession by speaking directly with legislators about current medical practice concerns. NCMS staff will prep participating members and provide tips on how to convey messages regarding pressing medical and patient issues.

This program is a great way for medical organizations across North Carolina to present a united front while advocating on behalf of their fellow physicians. On White Coat Wednesdays, members will visit and see the General Assembly in action, meet one-on-one with North Carolina legislators while also taking part in committee meetings. These interactions build relationships that will benefit the health care profession today and in the future. 

Grab your white coats and come to Raleigh and see what advocacy–on behalf of you and your patients– is all about. For an agenda and to schedule a White Coat Wednesdays visit, contact Chip Baggett, NCMS Director of Legislative Relations, at [email protected] or 800-722-1350.
