Professional development and education
The daily practice of medicine, for better or worse, is shaped by regulation and legislation. Everything from the number of clicks in an electronic health record to the viability of a practice has underpinnings in decisions made by the government. This session will provide an overview of the year in advocacy efforts from the ACR, with a focus on how to become involved in these ongoing advocacy efforts. The session will be capped off with perspectives from a member of the U.S. Congress with a view of the landscape for the coming year. This session's message to potential participants is: "Remember: If you're not at the table, you're on the menu!"
