The LAFP invites you to participate in the Annual White Coat Day at the Capitol in Baton Rouge.
May 15, 2019
8:00 am - 4:00 pm
This opportunity will allow you to join colleagues at the state capitol, gain information about the issues affecting family medicine and your patients and dialogue with state legislators and administration officials.
