White Coat Wednesday

The LAFP invites you to participate in the Annual White Coat Wednesday at the Capitol in Baton Rouge. 
April 10, 2024
7:30 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.
White Coat Day allows family physicians to discuss salient healthcare issues with Louisiana legislators and relay the issues that affect their patients on a daily basis. You'll spend the day hearing from legislators, agency heads and the Governor's staff about relevant issues.  YOU are the voice for your patients: the LAFP is calling on you to make a difference. White Coat Day is designed to provide free health screenings to legislators while discussing important issues and concerns affecting the health of your patients. 
Participants in White Coat Day will:
  • Make a difference for the future of family medicine
