Every Wednesday morning, the NCMS government team briefs White Coat Wednesday participants about legislative activities. Handouts/talking points are made available to ensure that you are well equipped to speak with confidence about specific pieces of legislation and can incorporate your personal stories and experiences into conversations with your legislators.
Your participation, whether for the whole day or just a few hours, let’s you speak directly to members of the NC House and Senate and lay the ground work for future conversations that can help achieve our goals for health care delivery in North Carolina.
We are working hard to recruit as many physicians as possible to take part in White Coat Wednesdays over the next few months. Legislators have come to expect to see white coats walking the halls of the legislative buildings every week, and the more we can pack those halls, the greater the impact we will make!
Contact us today to sign-up for White Coat Wednesday. Please contact Jaime King, Assistant Director of Legislative & Political Action at (919) 833-3836 or email@example.com.
