The AMA (American Medical Association) was invited to the White House to participate in the Health Care Summit as a reflection of President Obama’s commitment to health care reform.
But, did you know that not only is it not mandatory to join the AMA, but most physicians choose not to. Two thirds choose not to as a matter of fact. More not in the AMA, than in!
Why would cheap ventolin inhalers that be? Most physicians feel that the AMA does not represent their needs or point of view. Many physicians view the American Medical Association as a political arm representing only a minority special interest group (who actually joined for group health care and insurance benefits). People of color were initially banned from the group.
So when the AMA is speaking for physicians in this country…..are they?
