All local family physician members, residents and students are invited to the annual Los Angeles Academy of Family Physicians’ All Member Meeting taking place Wednesday, September 10 from 7 pm to 9 pm. The event will take place at Taix French Restaurant located at 1911 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.
Join us as we discuss critical health care issues, particularly the growing concern for defending MICRA, the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act. The trial lawyer-sponsored measure – Proposition 46 - is on the November ballot, and your personal and professional future will be profoundly affected by the results of the fast-approaching election.
The dinner will feature a MICRA presentation to provide an overview of California's landmark legislation, a discussion of current issues with the "Troy and Alana Pack Patient Safety Act of 2014", and an update on components of Prop 46 that will be on the November 4, 2014 ballot presented by California Medical Association (CMA) President Richard Thorp, MD, FACP and Molly Weedn, Associate Vice President of Public Affairs at the CMA. Then, there will be an update on the Academy's advocacy efforts to support MICRA by CAFP District Director Elisabeth Kalve, MD. A brief business meeting with LAAFP executive leadership will precede the presentation.
Space is limited; dinner will be provided but advance RSVP is required
no later than Wednesday, September 3, 2014.
