ED Doc Day @ The Capitol
Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Sign-up now!


 

WE NEED YOU!  Come attend the annual Emergency Doc Day at the Capitol.  With Governor Ducey proposing a "modernization" of Arizona's Medicaid Program (AHCCCS), and the issue of Balanced Billing/Fair Payment being discussed throughout the country, it is vitally important for you to attend to provide direct insight on these and other important medical issues with our state legislators.

ACEP PR in DC has produced a parody version of that ad starring ACEP members to drive home the message that emergency physicians provide real, life-saving care for their patients – unlike insurance companies.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyoJjA1mt-Q

2011
-$1000 awarded to Dr. Stephen Charbonneau & Dr. Whitney Kiebel; Advisor Dr. Dale Woolridge (UofA) - The study was the result of an internal training module and assessing impact of this module.  If you recall, the grant had requested funding to support meetings (lunch/snacks) in the attempt to deliver this training to outside physician groups.  This is where the study failed.  To Whitney and Steve's disappointment, they could not get a set of docs together to sit in on this training.  (I'm sure you can relate on how hard it is to get a series of docs together).   For this reason, the $1k check was never used and never cashed.
