The president of the Texas Medical Association (TMA), the country’s largest state medical society, will discuss the role of organized medicine in lobbying at the nation’s Capitol. Dr. Garcia, who earned his advocacy spurs while still in medical school, will explain how TMA – alone and in collaboration with other societies – lobbies Congress and the Administration with  the goal of preserving physician autonomy and the sacred patient-physician relationship. He will discuss the role of the Coalition of State Medical Societies, various ad hoc alliances, and the American Medical Association.
