White Coat Wednesdays

Go to Raleigh. Get Involved.IMG_8665

Attend the Legislative Advocacy “White Coat Wednesdays” Program in 2018!

Make plans now to attend a White Coat Wednesday program in the 2018 Short Session of the NC General Assembly:  Register now online

Legislative Advocacy Days are your chance to learn more about the ins-and-outs of the government affairs and how best to approach your legislator regarding health care issues. The NCMS will hold a briefing in the morning with tips on “dos and don’ts” in relaying your message to your legislator and on the hot-button medical and patient issues currently in the spotlight at the General Assembly.

Following this briefing, head down with NCMS staff members to the General Assembly and meet one-on-one with your legislator; take part in committee meetings and see the General Assembly in action; and begin building relationships with your legislators for the future.

Pick a day to organize a group — such as other physicians from your community or your specialty colleagues from around the state — to participate together. Can’t make a group event, but still wish to attend a White Coat Wednesday? Individual physicians and PAs are welcome to come to Raleigh on any Wednesday during the legislative session.
