Petition to create AMA Disability Advisory Committee

Online petition - Creation of an AMA Disability Advisory Committee

"Numerous recent medical cases, such as the growth attenuation treatment given to Ashley, underscore this urgency. It is imperative that the disability rights perspective of people with disabilities is formally represented in the structure of the AMA so as to minimize the likelihood that similar mistakes, breaches in the law, will happen in the future.

Please sign it and circulate it as widely as you can. And as quickly as you can. The AMA will hold its annual meeting in Chicago on Thursday, and we would like to present the petition to them on this day.
Thank you in advance, for your help.
Linda Edwards
