August recess

Did you know your member of Congress is in their district for the month of August? That means they are home right now on summer recess andavailable to meet with you about the issues of concern to you and your patients.

There are three major public health issues that Doctors for America members know are important for patients. Unfortunately, Congress has yet to act to address gun violence, combat Zika and fund life-saving programs on America's opioids epidemic.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Set up a meeting with your member of Congress and urge them to put patients over politics to protect the public health on one (or all) of the issues above. Use this website to contact your member and request a meeting.
  2. Get informed on the issues by clicking here.
  3. Report back to us on what happened by emailing
If you have never done a meeting before then you are in good company! Doctors for America has a webinar with a quick tutorial that you can use this summer and beyond. Take a few minutes to watch this training to learn the most effective tactics to use in meetings with your elected officials.

Thank you for speaking out to improve the Nation’s health!
