Indiana legislators need to hear from practicing family physicians on the issues you care about. Their decisions affect your life and practice! The IAFP offers a medium through which you can be involved in the legislative process.
As physicians you hold a respected place in the community and your opinion counts, whether the issue is scope of practice or public health. During each legislative session the IAFP seeks out members to give testimony on family medicine issues during committee hearings. Get on our list of go-to physicians! If you are interested in providing testimony on a particular issue, please call 317.237.4237 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Write a Letter/Make a Call
The primary way the IAFP will communicate with you on legislative issues is through the IAFP Today email newsletter. At times when a key bill is up for a vote, the IAFP will send out information to you in an IAFP Today newsletter explaining the issue and how you can help, including making a phone call, writing a letter, or attending a council meeting or town hall.
When we need local, state or national policy makers to hear from family physicians we utilize the AAFP legislative action center “Speak Out.” Speak Out enables you to easily send email messages to legislators and lawmakers on issues you care about. You will be contacted via a mass email from the AAFP when a Speak Out alert for Indiana is available. (Please make sure we have your current email address and mailing address on file, so we can correctly identify your legislative district. Email us with your updated information!)
