This event will take place on April 18, 2018, in downtown Sacramento and is free for SSVMS/CMA members. Join over 400 of your colleagues as we meet with legislators to advocate for issues important to physicians and the patients we serve. In addition to meeting one-on-one with the Sacramento region’s elected officials, you’ll have the opportunity to attend political panels, speeches and enjoy socializing with your physician and medical student colleagues over breakfast and lunch. The energy around the Capitol is electric. I hope you will be able to join SSVMS’ delegation on April 18 as we advocate for our profession and our patients.
