David Weiss Recognized at the Iowa MGMA Spring Conference

David Weiss, Practice Administrator for Family Medicine of Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, was recognized at the Iowa MGMA’s Spring Conference for his national MGMA award – MGMA 2017 Legislative Liaison of the Year.

The MGMA Legislative Liaison of the Year Award recognizes a medical practice professional serving as a state MGMA legislative liaison volunteer who stands out for providing outstanding leadership in the education and motivation of MGMA members through grassroots and advocacy involvement on legislative and regulatory issues of importance to medical group practices.

This year’s recipient David Weiss was chosen from a competitive pool of six finalists for his close work with the MGMA Government Affairs team to help disseminate news about federal policy topics, ability to mobilize members in grassroots advocacy campaigns and dedication to influencing policymaking through data. He has also been a resource to his fellow legislative liaisons across the country and shared his perspective during the “Lessons Learned: State MGMA Leaders Share Advocacy Success Stories” panel at the 2017 MGMA State Leadership Conference.

MGMA thanks all our Legislative Liaison volunteers for their significant contributions toward advancing MGMA’s advocacy priorities and would like to extend our warmest congratulations to David on this significant achievement.
