At the 2016 AMA Annual Meeting, Delegates adopted a variety of policies on important issues affecting the health of patients across the country. The AMA House of Delegates took action to address illegal methamphetamine production, standards of practice for dry needling, attorney ads on drug side ­effects and long-­term health and wellness in the juvenile justice system. In addition, dozens of physicians, including MSDC Secretary and AMA Alternate Delegate Raymond Tu, MD (pictured below left), lined up to testify about expanding AMA policy on gun violence as they shared their experiences treating victims.
