2020 OSA Day at the Capitol

02-11-2020 9:00 am -4:00 am
Fellow OSA Members,

Please join us for our second annual OSA Day at the Capitol!  Swap your calls, get your day covered, and come join us.

Over 50% of Americans don't know that anesthesiologists are physicians.  This is a wonderful opportunity for us to educate Oregon's decision-makers on the critical role that we play in healthcare.

We will be providing education on relevant policy issues, tips on talking with legislators, information on the legislative process, and, of course, food.  We will set up meetings for you with your representatives (and accompany you if you want). While we plan on being at the Capitol from 9am to 4pm, you're welcome to depart at the conclusion of your last scheduled meeting. 
Please contact me with your questions and RSVPs at

I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
