On the evening of November 27, NASS Members recently had the opportunity to attend a telephone town hall meeting with Rep. Michael Burgess, MD (R-TX). Prior to his election into office, Rep. Burgess practiced as an Obstetrician and Gynecologist who now serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and is the Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health. In 2009, Dr. Burgess founded and currently serves as Chairman of the Congressional Health Care Caucus and is a member of the House Republican Doctors Caucus.
Congressman Burgess discussed the health care policy agenda leading into the next Congress and the current “fiscal cliff” negotiations between the President and Congress. NASS members also had the opportunity to ask the Congressman questions.
