Pints & Politics series commencing in September
This fall, Hoosier physicians can discuss key health care issues with their local legislators over a beer.

Following the 175th Annual Convention in Plainfield, ISMA will commence a new statewide effort to connect Indiana physicians with their lawmakers via a “Pints & Politics” series.

Each Pints & Politics event will feature a cocktail hour with heavy appetizers before ISMA Vice President of Government Relations John Ruckelshaus introduces legislators and gives an overview of ISMA’s 2025 legislative agenda. Attendees will then have the opportunity to ask lawmakers in attendance questions.

Each event will start at 6:30 p.m. local time and last no more than two hours. The following dates and venues are set, and registrations will soon go live at

  • Thursday, Sept. 19, Evansville Country Club, 3810 Stringtown Road, Evansville
