Washington, DC Fly-in and
Steering Committee Meeting
March 4 - 5 2019
Members of the DPC Coalition, Steering Committee, and AAFP Board joined over 1,100 Osteopathic physicians, students, and residents for two chilly March days on Capitol Hill lobbying for the passage of the Primary Care Enhancement Act. DPC Coalition Members met with over 60 Senators, Representatives, and congressional staff giving voice to the need for affordable primary care for all Americans. Senator Bill Cassidy, MD (R-LA) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) spoke to our physicians and other attendees on the Hill about the urgent need for these important clarifications to the tax code to improve primary care access around the nation. Employer groups such as Boeing, Chrysler, the U.S. Chamber and the National Business Group on Health joined the conversation on the need for DPC as a part of a comprehensive approach to improve health benefits and help all Americans get better care in a personal relationship with the physician of their choice. We appreciate everyone's time and support in promoting DPC and look forward to planning our next Fly In being held in September 2019.
