Congressional advocacy

Posted By Chet Seward, Tuesday, July 15, 2014
As the federal election starts to heat up in preparation for November, CSEPS leaders are actively engaged in building relationships with the Congressional Delegation and sharing information about ophthalmology’s priorities. Drs. Richard Kelmenson and Alan Kimura met with Congressman Mike Coffman at the end of May. The conversation focused on the systemic woes within the VA system, transparency in health care marketing issues and electronic health records. Congressman Coffman is locked in a tight race for re-election to Colorado’s 6thCongressional District.
