Let’s Celebrate: ED to MED Turns One!

This April marks one year since the launch of our ED to MED campaign—so let’s celebrate! In honor of our anniversary, we are hosting a Town Hall panel discussion on the value of participating in grassroots advocacy. The Town Hall will take place as a part of the Joint AACOM & AODME 2017 Annual Conference. From the importance of the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, to the needs of the future physician workforce, we stand ready to answer your questions!
