How is Doctors for America different from other physician groups?
- We are a movement that is based on collective action, rather than a trade association based on identity (i.e., radiologists, Mississippi doctors).
- Instead of having lobbyists, we take action ourselves.
- We focus our advocacy primarily on patients’ needs, rather than on the details of physician practice. Our priorities are improving access to both health care and to basic life needs that determine health.
- We encourage our members to belong to other organizations to bring the actions and resources of DFA to a broader audience.
