2017 MOCEP Advocacy Day

2017 MOCEP Advocacy Day

POSTED IN: Past Events,

Join Emergency Physicians from around the state at the 2017 MOCEP Advocacy Day. This event will be held January 25, 2017, at the Missouri Capitol Building in Jefferson City.

Join with MOCEP leaders and colleagues from across Missouri to discuss advocacy and health policy issues that impact EM and our patients on a daily basis.

Learn about national issues such as ED overcrowding and boarding, CME requirements, reimbursement shortcomings, and credentialing issues.

MOCEP’s governmental consultant team will review hot topics being debated in Jefferson City during the coming term.

After lunch, you and others from your area of the state, will meet with your state representatives and Senators so YOU can be the voice of emergency medicine in Missouri! (MOCEP will arrange the meetings for you.)
