Will You Share your Patient Evaluation and Management Story?
The ACR is always in need of stories that can be shared with members of Congress. Specific examples of how you care for your patients—and, in particular, how you manage patients with chronic conditions—are very compelling to members of Congress and increase their understanding of rheumatology’s unique situation. Send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (404) 633-3777 to speak with ACR government affairs staff. Your involvement makes a very real difference in policy outcomes.
