Berks County Medical Society Medical Record Winter 2017-18 - 13

However hard it sometimes is to believe, I am confident that the legislature agrees
on at least this point, that on health issues even the sum of our diverse experience and
education can't match the benefit of training, continuing education and professional
experience that a practicing physician brings to patients every day.
The General Assembly's authority for public health policy also comes with the
responsibility for it, however, although the physician-legislature relationship at times is not
dissimilar to the one of deciding whether to focus on individual trees or on the forest.
This is a natural tension, and a uniform opinion is no more guaranteed among
physicians than with any other group. Even relying on quantifiable science for support has
hurdles in deciding what is sufficiently reliable and relevant to a public policy issue, and
even over what the proper question is.
The 2012 ACP Statement of Principles recognizes this, I think, and
offers a helpful starting place and guide in those situations.
I am heartened to see what I hope will be a committed
involvement by the Berks County Medical Society to matters like this
in the future. The most valued source on health care to a legislator
often is the physicians in his or her own community.
- Senator Judy Schwank
