While financial contributions are critical, they are not enough. To ensure that medicine’s voice is heard throughout the halls of government, members must get involved. By participating in the “Doctor of the Day” program and other MDPAC-sponsored events, participants are making sure that the voices of physicians and patients are heard. This involvement also increases their awareness of the ever-changing political landscape.

Doctor of the Day

The "Doctor of the Day" program gives participants a chance to come to Lansing and experience the legislative process in action. It also provides a great opportunity for participants to meet directly with state legislators to explain the pro-medicine agenda. 

"Doctor of the Day" visits may be scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays during the legislative session. Visits typically last all day and include lunch. MSMS will make all arrangements and provide participants with necessary materials. There is no cost for participating.
