Image Gallery: ACEP Members Host ED Tours for Legislators

Newly elected and veteran Members of Congress alike rely heavily upon input from their constituents. Whether your Member is a freshman representative or a seasoned senator with years of legislative experience, he or she wants to hear what you, as a constituent and a physician, have to say about issues of importance to the community.

Legislators are looking for information about our health care system -- where it works and where it doesn't work. As the front-line of our nation's health care delivery system, emergency physicians are well-positioned to educate legislators on a wide-range of issues including patient access, public health concerns, rural and inner-city health issues, and quality of care.

Now is the perfect time to host an emergency department visit for your Member of Congress. Dozens of ACEP members have already hosted visits with tremendous success. As part of ACEP's long-range advocacy efforts, we would like to have as many legislators as possible spend time with an emergency physician, seeing first-hand the inner workings of a hospital emergency department and those patients seeking care in this setting.
