Doctor of the Day

Doctor of the Day is our unique volunteer opportunity with state lawmakers to highlight what family physicians are all about. Volunteers spend the day at the Colorado State Capitol, where they provide consultation and urgent medical care to legislators, Capitol staff and visitors.

The legislative session runs from January to May and volunteers can sign up as their schedule allows. Staff will provide you with an update on the legislature’s work on the date you volunteer and you will have the opportunity to watch and listen to legislative proceedings as you wish.
