Advocacy Resource Center (ARC)

The American Medical Association Advocacy Resource Center works to help shape and inform state legislation, regulations and policies in support of patients and physicians. By supporting policies that improve patient health, protect trusted patient/physician interactions and promote sustainable physician practices, the AMA’s work, in coordination with state and national medical specialty societies, has resulted in the defeat and/or enactment of hundreds of proposed state laws and regulations.
