Area(s) of Interest: Advocacy Physician Leadership
With record attendance, more than 600 physicians, residents, medical students and stakeholders gathered in Sacramento on April 24 to bring the voice of medicine to legislators for the 45th annual California Medical Association (CMA) Legislative Advocacy Day.
Wearing white coats, physicians converged on the Capitol to educate legislators about critical health care issues, including the dangers of sugar-sweetened beverages and creating standards for vaccine medical exemptions.
Attendees also heard from keynote speaker, California Governor Gavin Newsom, who told the packed room about his strong commitment to increasing access to care for all Californians. “I want to be known as the health care governor,” Gov. Newsom said.
