Announcing the First Annual MOCEP Advocacy Day!
2014 First Annual MOCEP Advocacy Day – Jefferson City
January 22nd 2014
It is easy to dismiss advocacy as simply “politics” or efforts best left to lobbyists. However, as emergency physicians, you practice advocacy every day. Every time you stand up on behalf of a vulnerable patient, or struggle to obtain the resources you need to provide quality emergency care for your community you are acting as an advocate.
