State Legislative Conference

Friday, November 14 - Saturday, November 15
Loews New Orleans Hotel
New Orleans, LA

Spark real change in your state. Delve into the hot family medicine issues at the state level and advocate on behalf of family medicine, your patients, and your community. Network and build relationships with health policy experts, family physicians, constituent chapter leaders, and AAFP staff as you discuss state health policy issues.

Build your list of contacts to call on for insights and recommendations, and deepen your understanding of state issues that affect family medicine.

Share your experiences and participate in discussions, and attend sessions on:

  • How to host a successful chapter advocacy day
  • Federal Trade Comission and Scope of Practice
  • 2014 Election outcomes with David Wasserman (back by popular demand) 

Be a resource for your state. Register for the State Legislative Conference and tell your friends. Share the opportunity for involvement in state-level advocacy. 

Before you go, reach out to your state chapter—find out how they’re getting involved.
