Now more than ever your support of organized medicine in Missouri is paramount. The St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society is asking all doctors (members and non-members) to clear your schedule for Wednesday, March 5, 2014 to join fellow physicians and the Missouri State Medical Association to lobby legislators in Jefferson City to support Tort Reform bills HB 1173 and SB 589. The annual White Coat Rally Day will take place that day from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Missouri Capitol.

Visit ShowMeTortReform.com to register for the event and to view the day's schedule, review talking points or to connect with your legislator. Your registration is your reservation for lunch in the Capitol. Don't forget to wear your white coat.
