Thurs., April 10 (noon) -- Illinois ophthalmologists and Resident Ambassadors met with Senators Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk during the AAO's Advocacy Day.  Later, the delegation met privately with Senator Durbin's legislative assistant who was among the most knowledgable we've every met with.  He told the group that he spends about half his time now working on the SGR "fix" legislation.  (Click on the blog entry link to view a photo of the group with our US Senators.)
