Advocacy

Leg Day postcard, 2015

 

Join us for our Legislative Day, Monday, March 9th, 2015.

ONE VOICE ADVOCATING FOR PATIENTS ACROSS OREGON

We will meet in the State Capitol Building, room 50 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.  Continental breakfast and lunch will be served.

OAFP staff will make arrangements for you to meet your legislators.  We are introducing a payment reform bill and need your help in building support.  Legislators need to hear from doctors, Residents and medical students about the difficulty of providing excellent patient care in an environment of diminishing resources and increasing administrative burden.

Please RSVP to the OAFP and let us know you are coming!

 

The OAFP advocates for policies that improve the lives of family physicians and the individuals and families we serve. 

The OAFP has voted to forgo funding from pharmaceutical companies — including advertising in our magazine and exhibiting at our conferences — to provide assurance that our work is free from any influence from the pharmaceutical industry in its policies, programs and operations.
