Federal Advocacy

It is critically important for Tennessee’s family physicians to have a strong, influential voice not just in Nashville but also in Washington, DC, where lawmakers set healthcare policies that trickle down to the state and local levels.

TNAFP works directly with AAFP to engage on important issues, keep members informed of what is happening in Congress, and give members opportunities to participate in critical national advocacy campaigns.
