KMA physicians are encouraged to engage with their legislators to promote priority issues as the Association hosts a virtual “Advocacy in Action Month” throughout February 2021.
Advocacy in Action Month will replace “Physicians’ Day at the Capitol,” the in-person KMA advocacy event held in Frankfort each year, out of concern for the health and safety of Kentucky’s physicians during the COVID-19 pandemic.
There will be a number of ways members can participate, including a virtual member briefing that will discuss the Association’s legislative priorities for the session on Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. ET. Members will also be encouraged to reach out to their legislators each Tuesday during the month as part of the initiative’s “Talk Tuesdays” events, as well as to contribute to the Kentucky Physicians Political Action Committee (KPPAC) during “KPPACtion Day.”
More information on Advocacy in Action Month, as well as registration for the events, is forthcoming.
