This month, the UAPD staff sent political surveys to Los Angeles County psychiatrist and dentist members. Please remember to fill it out and send it back. Los Angeles County is at a crossroads. The economy will force public officials to make hard choices that directly or indirectly impact all of us. UAPD needs your input on the various strategies on how to protect your pensions, stop privatization of doctors’ jobs, and resist infringements on scope of practice. If you have any questions call Christopher Ige at the UAPD office at (310) 398-4038.
