WASHINGTON, June 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Let My Doctor Practice is a growing movement to promote responsible change in the health care system by restoring physicians' autonomy and protecting the doctor-patient relationship. Let My Doctor Practice will host a national conference, Summit at the Summit, in Keystone, Colo., July 20–26, 2015. The conference and simultaneous webcast will begin to achieve the movement's mission: returning the practice of medicine to those who actually practice medicine.

Let My Doctor Practice believes in the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship, the autonomy to practice medicine without restraint imposed by overreaching government and corporate entities, and, above all, that patient care and safety should never be compromised.
