Be an Advocate for Your Patients
The Importance of Advocacy
Laws and regulations affect every aspect of an orthopaedic practice. As a result, orthopaedic surgeons have no choice but to engage in the public policy process.
Otherwise, other segments of the health care industry will take advantage of our absence, and we won’t like the results.
Learn About the Issues
TOA’s e-mail newsletters provide unique and timely information that often cannot be found elsewhere.

Engage Your Lawmakers & Health Aides
When your state and federal lawmakers vote on issues that affect musculoskeletal care, we want them to turn to the musculoskeletal experts, orthopaedic surgeons.
At a minimum, write to your lawmakers. Better yet, build an actual relationship with your lawmakers and their health care aides.
