Dr. 'Smith' Comes to Washington: Angry Physicians From All 50 States Rally in DC on Sept 10
Date:9/8/2009

WASHINGTON, Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than 1,000 physicians from all 50 states will converge on the Capitol in scrubs and lab coats this week to bring an angry message to Congress: "Stop meddling in medicine!"

The doctors, all traveling as individuals and at their own expense, will hold a rally at the Capitol, lobby their Members of Congress, and meet with the doctors of Congress, including Tom Price, M.D. (GA) and Sen. Tom Coburn (OK).

The event, co-sponsored by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) and Tea Party Patriots, was prompted by the American Medical Association's misguided endorsement of House Bill HR 3200, a bill that would turn more control over to the government, rather than restore it to patients and doctors.

"The AMA's endorsement was bought and sold, at the expense of patients, and the expense of the profession of medicine," said Dr. Michael Schlitt, who is traveling from Seattle. "I couldn't stand by without telling Congress and the public that they don't represent me, or most of the doctors I know. And that it's time Congress listens to real doctors from the frontlines."

The doctors' rally is the first public event of the 9.12.09 March on Washington.

SPEAKERS INCLUDE:

Rep. Tom Price, MD (R-GA)

Rep. Phil Gingrey, MD (R-GA)

Members of Congressional Doctors Caucus

Mark Kellen, MD, President, AAPS, Rockford IL

Michael Schlitt, MD, neurosurgeon, Seattle

Peter Lavine, MD, President, Washington DC Medical Society

Scot Barbour, MD, orthopedic surgeon, Atlanta

Hal Scherz, MD, pediatric urologist, Atlanta

Clare Gray, MD, internist, Hickory NC

SCHEDULE:

1-3 Meet-up & staging area at Upper Senate Park

1-5 Congressional visits by individuals or small groups

4-5 Private reception with Congressional doctors

5:30 - 6:30 Rally , Upper Senate Park, Constitution Ave.
