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. We hosted the event in-person on Wednesday, March 23, 2022.
The event is free for all TMA physician members, medical office staff and healthcare administrators. If you have any questions, please contact Erika Thomas at Erika.Thomas@tnmed.org.
Prior to the event, TMA's government affairs team hosted a virtual Day on the Hill Primer on March 16. Watch the recording for a rundown of crucial legislative issues, talking points and general day-of information.
Day on the Hill 2021 Recap
The General Assembly declined large, in-person group lobbying events in 2021. So TMA visited lawmakers virtually via Zoom video conferencing with small group breakout discussions on March 3 from 11:30 to 12:30 pm CST. 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.
