Make your voice heard through the ACP-ASIM Key Contact Program

From the October ACP-ASIM Observer, copyright 2002 by the American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine.

Frustrated by skyrocketing liability insurance premiums or hassles with Medicare? Make your voice heard through the ACP-ASIM Key Contact Program.

More than 2,000 internists work with the College's Key Contact program to talk to their members of Congress on a wide range of issues that affect internists. If you don't have any experience talking to legislators, don't worry: The program gives you the tools you need to develop and maintain relationships with your elected officials.

The College sends out legislative alerts to Key Contacts and supplies all the necessary information, including sample letters to help you get in touch with legislators. The program also operates a grassroots hotline (888-218-7770) and other services to keep you up to date and help you reach out to your representatives.

For more information and to enroll in the program, go to ACP-ASIM Online or call the College's grassroots associate Kathy Heabel at 800-338-2746, ext. 4532.
