Dr. Tara Knisely (Class of 2022) and Dr. Philip Stone (Class of 2022) were fortunate to be able to attend the American College of Emergency Physicians Leadership and Advocacy Conference in Washington, D.C. During their time in the nation’s capital, they represented their respective residency programs and the Michigan College of Emergency Physicians. They met face-to-face with state senators and representatives advocating for important topics in emergency medicine. These included emergency department workplace violence, emergency room boarding, and ensuring stable and fair Medicare physician payments. They had firsthand experience talking with legislators who are influential in passing laws that directly affect their work. It was a wonderful way to get involved and advocate for patients and emergency medicine.
