Doctor of the Day – Sign up for the 2021 Florida Legislative Session
The Doctor of the Day program was founded in the 1960s by a former Florida House member, Representative Walter Sackett, M.D., from Miami. Representative Sackett encouraged the Florida Medical Association to bring a physician to Tallahassee each day of the Regular Session. This program, which is administered by the Legislative Clinic, delivers a vital professional service to the members of the Florida Legislature and all legislative employees. The physicians of Florida have provided this important voluntary public service each year since the program’s inception.
- Contact your representative or Senator (or any representative or Senator) and ask to be sponsored. This should be an automatic “yes” and not a difficult (or unexpected) ask to any Senator or representative for sponsorship.
