Advocacy

The Legislative and government agencies significally impact both our profession and our patients.  Hundreds of laws are introduced each legislative session, and regulatory agencies, such as the State Medical Board and others, ensure the resulting rules are followed in practice.  It is vital that members of the WVPA make our voices heard and our position known and the most effective way requires active participation by individual members of the WVPA.  

You may determine the current procedural status of any bill in the current legislature by logging on to the WV Legislature site at www.legis.state.wv.us.
