Winter Council & Day at the Capitol 2019

March 3 - Salem Convention Center, Salem, OR | March 4 - Oregon State Capitol, Salem, OR 

Join us for our Day at the Capitol. With many health policy issues in front of us, this is our opportunity to discuss these issues and develop our positions on them.

Come for Sundays session, Mondays sessions or both. Monday afternoon, you have the opportunity to meet with your state representatives and represent surgeons views on bills before the legislature.

Please make every effort to join your colleagues and demonstrate to our representatives that Oregon surgeons are engaged in the political process of crafting health care policy for the state!

Sincerely,

Keith Thomas, MD FACS President, OR ACS
