Advocacy Day

Be the voice of Missouri Family Physicians by participating in Advocacy Day at the State Capitol.  Bring a colleague, medical student or resident and join fellow Missouri Academy Members to promote the importance of family medicine and primary care to our state legislators. This is your opportunity to educate your State Representative and Senator on issues affecting you, your profession, and your patients.

NEW THIS YEAR — Can’t attend?  We’ve got you covered…there is an opportunity for you to participate and make your voice heard.  We will be offering a live feed of Monday evening’s detailed legislative briefing through Zoom – but you will still need to register so we can plan accordingly.

AND…we will have an opportunity for you to contact your legislators through a Speak Out portal.  We will craft a message for you to use, or create your own.  Don’t worry, we will remind you if you choose to participate in our virtual advocacy outreach.

*A limited number of complimentary sleeping rooms are available through the MAFP.  Contact Kathy Pabst at kpabst@mo-afp.org or call 573.635.0830 for more information and availability.

Calling all Medical Schools and Residency Programs – Send a group of students or residents to attend this year’s important legislative meeting.  Let’s show our legislators that we are united and serious about taking care of our patients and protecting the scope of practice for family physicians.
