Moving Mountains By Example: Doctor Inspires Others to Fund Anti-MOC Legal Effort

In a reaffirming gesture of solidarity, San Francisco cardiologist Michel Accad, MD has offered to supply an electronic copy of his book "Moving Mountains: A Socratic Challenge to the Theory and Practice of Population Medicine" (seen on Amazon) free of charge to anyone donating $50 or more in the next two weeks to our legal effort to end the onerous and unproven ABMS Maintenance of Certification (MOC™) program nationwide.

 Dr. Accad's affable and insightful personal blog (Alert and Oriented) and podcast (Accad and Koka Report) co-produced with Philadelphia cardiologist Anish Koka, MD, have garnered wide physician followings by respectfully and thoughtfully discussing timely issues that matter to doctors. (My recent 46-min podcast discussing this funding drive with them can be heard here).

While the sponsor of the legal effort, Practicing Physicians of America (on whose board I serve), has already reached over 75% of the $150,000 funding goal, I hope Michel's generosity will inspire many other physicians to join this funding drive in hopes working physicians of all ages can help end - once and for all - the expensive, onerous, and corrupt ABMS MOC™ program that has the potential to unjustly limit a physician's right to work.
