Do you already have an existing relationship with your state or federal legislator? OR have you been looking for an opportunity to do more “hands-on” advocacy? Join our PAL program, as a Physician Advocacy Liaison.
The Physician Advocacy Network will be the compilation and collaboration of physicians within EACH legislative district. Dubbed “Physician Advocacy Liaisons” (PAL) you will lead the physician – legislative outreach for your assembly person or senator. This PAL network makes advocacy more personal and ongoing.
The advocacy of MSCE / MSSNY is the single biggest benefit of your membership. As you’ve seen this year there is a near constant attack on physicians in NY State by well intentioned legislators.Remember, "if we are not at the table, we are on the menu!"
