Take Action Today - Sign the APMA Petition...And Share with Your Friends, Family and Patients
Earlier this year podiatry scored a big legislative victory in Washington when the US House passed legislation that would provide the Veterans Administration (VA) with the tools the VA needs to effectively and efficiently recruit and retain the best qualified doctors of podiatric medicine to serve the veterans of the United States. The legislation also garnered the support of all physician members of the US House VA Committee.
Now this legislation is before the US Senate. The Department of Veterans Affairs Provider Equity Act, S 2175, is a bill currently before the US Senate Veterans Affairs Committee. This legislation will allow our veterans - the men and women who protect and serve us every day - to have access to podiatrists in the VA system. With this bill, the VA can effectively recruit and retain the best qualified foot and ankle care providers.
We support this bill and are asking for your help by taking action. Please sign and share the APMA petition to add your name to our growing list of supporters to urge your US senators to cosponsor and vote for passage of this important bill for podiatry.
Thank you everyone for helping!
