7/23: The Fight for Medical Freedom Amid the Politicization of COVID-19
July 23 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Dear AAPS Members and Friends,
The AAPS team is hard at work in the fight to protect patient and physician rights as the attacks against them are more fierce than ever.
As we focus on particularly urgent matters this week, for example the FDA will be submitting a reply to our lawsuit, we wanted to let you know that the next “Doctors Are In” Webinar will be held on July 23.
Please plan to join us then for an important and timely discussion with AAPS General Counsel Andrew Schlafly, JD.
“The Fight for Medical Freedom Amid the Politicization of COVID-19 – A Legal Update”
Date/Time: Thursday, July 23, 2020, 8:30pm to 10pm Eastern Daylight Time

Andy Schlafly has been the General Counsel of AAPS for 25 years, leading the legal effort to preserve private medicine. He has argued many cases in trial and appellate courts, and his victories include compelling a hospital to produce witnesses at its internal sham peer review for the benefit of an AAPS member. Andy has three lawsuits pending to defeat Maintenance of Certification (MOC). He has also helped defeat bad legislation at the state level, including a bill that would ban out-of-network charges and another bill in some states that would impose MOC through the back door of the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact. Andy has won jury trials for an AAPS member against Aetna and led several efforts to overturn ObamaCare and block its unconstitutional implementation. His college degree is in engineering, and his law degree is from Harvard, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.
