Legislative Priorities

PAMED listened to the physician voice – your voice. A survey helped identify the advocacy issues most important to our membership and the Advocacy Task Force and the PAMED Board of Trustees approved PAMED's legislative priorities based on this clear feedback.

PAMED also will continue to address additional advocacy issues affecting Pa. physicians and patients as they arise. Follow along with our Bill Trackers to stay in the know.
