“No one really knows how the game is played, the art of the trade, how the sausage gets made. We just assume that it happens, but no one else is in the room where it happens.” Hamilton, An American Musical

Have you ever wondered how legislative decisions that directly impact YOU and YOUR PRACTICE are made? What’s the process? Who’s there? What do they discuss? How do they decide? Much like the above lyrics from Hamilton, most physicians and practice leaders don’t truly know how the D.C. game is played or understand why it’s essential to join our ASCRS ASOA Washington representation in advocating for ophthalmology’s interests on Capitol Hill.

During this symposium, Representative Miller-Meeks will share the inspiring story that drove her to practice ophthalmology and become a member of the United States House of Representatives. Panelists will discuss why it is essential to be in the room where it happens and how you can have a seat at the table. Everyone will leave inspired to get involved in the game.

Join us as we learn from ophthalmologist Congresswoman Mariannette Miller-Meeks, MD, Government Relations Committee members, and ASCRS’s Nancey McCann, who have all been in the room where it happens!

*This session is Non-CME.
