MAG ‘Top Docs’ show featuring House HHS chair now online
A recording of a recent Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) ‘Top Docs Radio’ show that featured Georgia Rep. Sharon Cooper (R-Marietta) – the chair of the Georgia House of Representatives Health and Human Services Committee – is now available online.
Rep. Cooper discussed the 2017 legislative session and her views on the state’s health care system.
Rep. Cooper has sponsored key legislation that has been enacted in Georgia, including an HIV screening bill for pregnant women, the Georgia’s Smoke Free Air Act, and the Health Share Volunteers in Medicine Act.
It is also worth noting that she was married to the late Tom Cooper, M.D., who co-founded MAG’s ‘Doctor of the Day’ program at the State Capitol. MAG ‘Doctor of the Day’ volunteers provide free minor medical care for legislators and their staff in MAG’s Medical Aid Station at the State Capitol during the legislative session each year.
MAG sponsors the ‘Top Docs’ program at 12 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. Between downloads and live listeners, MAG's ‘Top Docs’ show has reached more than 8,500 listeners – which includes people in all 50 states and 84 countries.
MAG’s ‘Top Docs Radio’ show is supported with a grant from Health Care Research, a subsidiary of Alliant Health Solutions.
With more than 7,800 members, MAG is the leading advocate for physicians in Georgia. It has members in every specialty and practice setting.
