International Medical Graduate Taskforce advocates for the Conrad State 30 Program on March 30th in Washington

On March 30th, 2012, the IMG Taskforce will meet with legislators during their annual Physician Lobby Day to advocate for the Conrad State 30 Improvement Act as well as other legislative measures to mitigate current and impending physician shortages.  Heather Sivaraman will be representing the attorneys at the Law Offices of Dayna Kelly today on Capitol Hill – meeting with Senators and Representatives.  The IMG Taskforce is a nationwide group of professionals in law and medicine dedicated to helping Americans in physician-shortage areas obtain the medical services they need.

The Conrad State 30 Program began in 1994 and has provided increased medical care to millions of Americans living in underserved areas by attracting international medical graduate physicians who agree to fufull a three year service agreement.  If passed, the act would expand and permanently reauthorize the existing Conrad State 30 program.
