Governmental Affairs Conference

2019 Governmental Affairs Conference
January 28-30 | Washington, D.C.




About the Conference

Make plans to join your colleagues in Washington at the Medical Association’s 2019 Governmental Affairs Conference. Protecting and promoting medicine’s interests on Capitol Hill is a never-ending responsibility that requires participation from physicians across all specialities. This is particularly true considering the magnitude of the health issues confronting Congress.

Due to the Congressional schedule, the format of the 2019 Governmental Affairs meeting will be similar to the 2018 meeting in order to increase participation from our Senators and Representatives. Meetings will begin late Monday afternoon and will conclude mid-day Wednesday. For those arriving early to enjoy D.C., rooms will be available under our block at the discounted rate.


The Medical Association’s Governmental Affairs Conference will provide you with this opportunity! During the conference, you will have the chance to personally meet your Senator and Representative and engage in discussions with them regarding medicine’s legislative agenda.
