Last week, medical students and DOs engaged with Congress and lawmakers to advocate for the profession for DO Day 2018. During Capitol Hill meetings, medical students and DOs shared their personal experiences to illustrate why access to student loan programs in The Higher Education Act and the protection of medical volunteers via the Good Samaritan Heath Professionals Act are of critical importance to physicians.
