The Texas Delegation to the American Medical Association House of Delegates has a reputation for being one of the best-prepared, hardest working groups of physicians in Chicago. This year is no exception.
Today, the Texans split into eight teams to monitor and testify at AMA reference committees, which took comments from all comers. The topics covered all the hot issues in medicine today: Medicare, Medicaid, ethics, pollution, medical students' debt, scope of practice, and health plan excesses.
After the hearings, the refence committees caucused and began work on their recommendations, which go before the full house beginning Monday afternoon.
