Day on the Hill
TMA’s annual policy briefing and lobby day in Nashville connects physicians directly with lawmakers so they can advocate for their patients and discuss major issues affecting the medical profession in Tennessee. The 2021 event was held on March 3 from 11:30 to 12:30 pm CST.
This year, the General Assembly declined large, in-person group lobbying events. So TMA visited lawmakers virtually via Zoom video conferencing with small group breakout discussions. Our typical all-day event shrunk to a dynamic 60-minutes.
While the online format was new, the overall concept and inter-workings remained the same. Invitations were extended to all 133 legislators, and over 300 physicians attended online to address healthcare-related issues.
We thank everyone for their participation, and hope to host the 2022 event in person. Watch this page for more information on next year's event.
