  WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30, 2021 PHYSICIANS: This month we have been celebrating PRIDE, which is an opportunity to celebrate our LGBTQ colleagues, other medical professionals and patients.

  TUESDAY, JUNE 15, 2021 PHYSICIANS: Today is the landmark day that Gov. Gavin Newsom has declared as the Golden State's ‘Re–Opening Day’ since the COVID–19 pandemic caused initial lockdowns in March of 2020.

  TUESDAY, MAY 4, 2021 PHYSICIANS: We are asking all physicians to contact their Representative in Congress and urge them to cosponsor the California Medical Association bill, HR 1133, the “Stopping Doctor Shortages Act.” This bill makes a technical fix to ensure that all California and Texas physicians can participate in the federal Public Service Student Loan Forgiveness Program. Due to an error in the implementing regulation, most California and Texas physicians cannot receive loan forgiveness like their colleagues in all other 48 states. It is harming California’s ability to recruit and ...
