Arizona doctors use wristbands to highlight tort reform
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Feb. 21, 2005
Arizonans for Access to Health Care, the organization created to carry out the activities of the Arizona Medical Assn.'s medical liability reform campaign, is using red wristbands to raise awareness to the medical liability crisis.
The group is encouraging doctors and others to get wristbands, wear them and use them as conversation starters about the medical liability crisis. Wristbands can be obtained through donations to the AAHC or by purchasing them in lots of 10 for $20. For more information, contact the medical association at (602) 246-8901.
Illinois physicians have been wearing and distributing green wristbands that read "Keep Doctors in Illinois" to create awareness about medical liability rate increases in their state.
